Beautiful Hummingbird (ビューティフルハミングバード) is an acoustic folk rock duo from Japan composed of Mitsuko Koike (小池光子, vocals) and Nobuaki Tabata (田畑伸明, acoustic guitar). They began playing together in 2002 and have been releasing albums since 2003. They also perform live shows on a regular basis. Beautiful Hummingbird has performed songs for many television commercials in Japan, but is perhaps best known to overseas audiences for their song さくらいろの季節 (fanfare mix) featured in the video game Katamari Forever.
