After a successful hit in Japan keyboard artist Yoshiaki Hoshi changed his performance name to Himekami (姫神) in 1980, sometimes in collaboration with his wife Etsuko. Their music has much in common with [a=Kitaro] - a mix between traditional Japanese and more modern, popular styles - but less stable in 'quality'. Although they made also over 40 albums, compilations included, many of them never got released outside Japan.

Yoshiaki Hoshi died in 2004, though the group has been continued by his son Yoshiki.
