Marine Day is a Japanese holiday commemorating a voyage by Emperor Meiji in a steam ship. There is, to the best of my knowledge, no traditional Japanese music to go with this holiday, so enjoy Enya asking you to Sail Away.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suites. Perhaps the only Norwegian music you actually know.
As you can see, I’m still processing the musical deaths of 2016.
