The Peanuts (ザ・ピーナッツ, Za Pīnattsu) are a Japanese twin sister singing group Emi Itō (伊藤エミ, Itō Emi) and Yumi Itō (伊藤ユミ, Itō Yumi). The twins were born in Tokonameshi, Aichi (Japan) on April 1, 1941; soon after their birth, the family moved to Nagoya. In the first years they sung Japanese covers of standards, foreign hits, and Japanese folk songs, then they began singing originals, written by their producer, Hiroshi Miyagawa, and such songwriters as Kōichi Sugiyama and Rei Nakanishi.
