In 2020, our company was in charge of music direction and composition for "CRYSTAL STORY - Forgotten Forest and Goddess", the first in the Night Walk series from SQUARE ENIX, known for Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy.
The location was Shinjuku Central Park.
The series combines the fantastic lights and sounds of a "night walk" with the experience of a story and the solving of a riddle, which is the key to the progress of the story.
Visitors depart for the forest at night with magic items in their hands, and experience a digital art space with illuminations, sounds, and images, a mysterious riddle-solving experience, and the world of a fantastical story.

Toyohara Station, the northernmost station in the Kanto region, was renovated in March 2019 to celebrate its 130th anniversary.
Taro Ishida composed the music for this station at the request of the Nasu Town Office.
Toyohara Station is an unmanned station with nothing nearby, but it is a very important means of transportation for local residents.
Especially for children, it is an indispensable station to go to school.
Yukiko Iso, a local dairy farmer, has been working for the children who use Toyohara Station for many years. She has been working as a traffic instructor for many years, both in hot and cold weather.
Mrs. Iso has written lyrics for the first time in her life.

This is the first time Taro Ishida sings a song.
It is a single disc, so there are only 3 songs in total.
I hope you will enjoy listening to it.
The jacket design and illustrations are also done by Yuuki Mashiko.
