Song ID filter. Japanese/Chinese female vocalist, accompanied by cello/violin only, in the late 90's. Phonetic attempt at the only line I can remember inside.

This is a long shot but I will give it a go. I got this song on a mix-tape about 12 years ago. It featured a female vocalist with a sweet voice singing in what must be Japanese or Chinese. The song is a sweet ditty and the only instruments are a couple of violins or violas or possibly even cello. There are a few points in the song where the music and singing stops for a moment before continuing. And now for the phonetically spelled, half-remembered first line....

'Aa-new-shi sons am-er-i-tow'

The only other clues I can give is that the words and music were sung/played in a slightly staccato fashion. I have not hear the song in about 10 years and never new either the name of the artist or the song. And finally the only other song I can recall from the mix-tape was the Ben-Fold song Underground.
