Let's walk looking up

坂本九 is a singer representing Japan in the 1960s. In particular, 坂本九's "Sukiyaki" is one of Japan's representative songs. It was also a number one song on the Billboard charts in the 1960s. In fact, the title of "Sukiyaki" is "Let's walk looking up". The reason why the title is known as "Sukiyaki" is because it was difficult to pronounce "Let's walk while looking up" in Japanese, so the president of an American record company decided to import the song and changed it to an easy-to-pronounce name. Even though the song "Let's walk looking up" has nothing to do with Sukiyaki.

"上を向いて歩こう" is a song that is often played when Japan enters international events such as the Olympics. Japan's leading animation company, Ghibli, also used "Upward Falling Down" in the animation "On Kokuriko Hill".
