"Ue o muite arukō" (上を向いて歩こう,  うえをむいてあるこう "I shall walk looking up") - A Japanese song that was performed by Japanese crooner Kyu Sakamoto, and written by Rokusuke Ei and Hachidai Nakamura. It is best known under its alternative title "Sukiyaki" in English-speaking parts of the world. The song reached the top of the sales charts in the United States in 1963, and was the only Japanese language song to do so. In total it sold over 13 million copies internationally.

The lyrics start as follows:

上を向いて歩こう ue o muite arukō (I shall walk looking up)
涙がこぼれないように namida ga kobore nai yō ni (so my tears won't fall)
思い出す春の日 omoidasu haru no hi (remembering spring days)
一人ぼっちの夜 hitoribocchi no yoru (on this lonely night)
