Wonderful World (feat. HIMEKAMI)

Himekami (姫神?) is a Japanese New Age musical group, founded in 1980 by composer Yoshiaki Hoshi as Himekami Sensation (姫神せんせいしょん, Himekami Senseishon?), changing its name to Himekami in 1984. The band's name is derived from Mount Himekami in Morioka, Iwate Prefecture. The group's current line-up consists of synthesizer player Yoshiki Hoshi (星吉紀?) and vocalists Wakako Nakajima, Tomoko Fujii, Junko Shiwa, and Yoriko Sano. The album Ama Takami no Kuni was the first released by the group following founder Hoshi's death in October 2004. Higher Octave Music has released a number of their albums in North America.
