Hiroshima's music is timeless and each song is certain to take you on a journey.

Should Have Been Subtitled "The Best Instrumentals."

This collection as awesome as it is collects the best instrumentals from Hiroshima's years with Sony. Hiroshima is best known for it's combination of traditional Japanese instruments and electric to create one of the most singular trademark sounds in music. Hiroshima also features an ever-changing lineup of female vocalists for a few key tracks on every album to date and those vocal performances can be stellar. This collection could have benefitted from a vocal to break the mood a bit but be that as it may, this cd is well done in both selection and over all mastering. Hiroshima continues to record to this day and this collection highlights their second association with a major label, the first association was with Arista/BMG which is now one label combined with Sony so who knows, a reconfigured anthology featuring the combined label may be in the works, or we can strongly suggest one.


I love this album. Especially One Wish. I love this band.


Formed: 1974 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Hiroshima, a group whose music falls between R&B, pop, world music, and jazz, has long had its own niche. The band integrates traditional Japanese instruments into their musical blend and has generally been both commercial and creative within its genre. Hiroshima's founding members are keyboardist Dan Kuramoto (who also played shakuhachi), June Okida Kuramoto on koto (a key part of the group's sound), Johnny Mori on taiko drums, and Danny Yamamoto on drums, percussion, and taiko.
