How to remember the planets in Japanese

Thanks to my mate kayanon who lives in Akita, Japan, now I know how to memorize the planets in Japanese. From Discover Japan!:
In Japanese there is also one way to memorize 9 planets. That is “Sui Kin Chi Ka Moku Do Ten Kai Mei (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto)” It may sound like Okyoh, but every Japanese people learns this at school.

Sui Suisei(水星) Mercury
Kin Kinsei(金星) Venus
Chi Chikyu(地球) Earth
Ka Kasei(火星) Mars
Moku Mokusei(木星) Jupiter
Do Dosei(土星) Saturn
Ten Tennousei(天王星) Uranus
Kai Kaiousei(海王星) Neptune
Mei Meiousei(冥王星) Pluto
