This is the fourth album released in 1983 by Himekami Senseishon, a project by Yoshiaki Hoshi, who has produced a number of oriental new age works based in his hometown in the Tohoku region and full of Japanese sentiment based on the Hiraizumi culture. After working on the soundtrack for the film adaptation of Kunio Yanagida's anecdote collection "Tono Monogatari", he was deeply impressed by the anecdotes and folklore of the Tono region, and since then he has used the Tohoku region as a theme in many of his works. In this album, digital synthesizers are used more than in his earlier works, and the sound is more transparent. This is purely domestic synthesizer music that has nothing to do with German electronics.
