A 手話 Song

Recently we had a concert night at church which included a "sign along" section.  This is a kid's song about favorite colors of crayons and how those are the ones that get used up first.

This song is Japanese, with Japanses Sign Language (手話) and not ASL.  It is interesting to see what signs are similar and which ones are different.  Of course knowing Japanese helps greatly...
