That doesn't sound at all familiar, unless it's Young Ieyasu Tokugawa
(1975), in which case it's not the son of the Shogun but rather the boy
who'll grow up to become Shogun.

That sounds like 3000 Leagues In Search of Mother (1976), which was dubbed
into English in the 1980s, but I don't remember the English title, which I
think was named for the dog.

I've got all the music, but haven't seen the anime yet because there were
no off-air copy or fansub distributions (Anime Village announced they'd be
carrying it) and I'm holding out for the box set, which, unlike Gundam,
won't be released until after the series run.
