I understand that since the Mikado is performed in japanese in the town of Chichibu,I was wondering if a japanese translation of this song is available (in romanji preferably).

I was under a different understanding that it took place in the town of "Titipoo" I realise that that is an english creation of a japanense name, however this opperetta was written by two english gentlemen living in Great Britain in the 1870's so I doubt they, were trying to get the town name 100% corret japanese. However they did get into the details about the clothing and walking while on stage.
