WATCH: Jerusalem of Gold…As Sung by Japanese Tourists


A group of Japanese tourists walk into an optician, this is not the opening of a joke, but rather the beginning of a quite wondrous occurrence.

They asked to sing iconic Israeli song Yerushalayim Shel Zahav (Jerusalem of Gold), which they did. Beautifully.

For the record, their pronunciation was great.
