Description

The mysterious Oriental tour of Kyoto, the ancient capital in Japan. 'Onmyoji', the Yin-Yang Master, is a Japanese fortuneteller based on feng-shui (geomancy), and was especially active in Kyoto, which had been the capital for 1,000 years. Every track name and concept is associated with a famous and traditional place in Kyoto.

Superstition has it that if one have slipped up on the slope, he or she will pass away within three years.
