    “Night On The Milky Way Train” (TOMITA)

    Looks like Okhotsk Fantasy is the new Tomita piece. Okhotsk probably refers to the sea north of Japan.
    I think it has a Kenji Miyazawa reference whom I think traveled to Sakhalin Island or wanted to when the southern half was owned by Japan and had built railroads on it.

    Pretty much half of the Ravel album. Bolero and Daphnis et Chloe are not yet re-released. “Night On The Milky Way Train” was first on Sound Creature in the 70s. It's inspired by Kenji Miyazawa novel. Joe Hisaishi and Haruomi Honono have also scored works based on that story. Tomita's more recent Ihatov Symphony is also inspired by Miyazawa
