Two Kitaro Re-Releases

Kitaro fans have two popular re-releases to look forward to this fall: 7th August we will get the Daylight, Moonlight: Live In Yakushiji on DVD – that was originally released in 2002. And on 2nd October, a 2-Disc Remastered, 25th anniversary Deluxe Edition of Kojiki.

Daylight, Moonlight: Live In Yakushiji
daylight-moonlightThis is the reissue of a Kitaro’s classic performance at Yakushiji Temple.

In a special event for world peace, Kitaro and his ensemble performed at the magnificent Yakushiji temple, the first concert ever presented in the venerable temple.  The temple is the final resting place of Genjo Sanzo.  Sanzo is famously known to have brought the sacred texts of Buddhism from India to Japan, making his journey on the ancient Silk Road more than a millennium ago.  “It was Genjo’s journey that inspired our performance,” recalls Kitaro.  “With our utmost passion, we hope that the Yakushiji concert reflected, the passion of his journey.”

Special DVD Features:

Interactive Menus
Mixed to Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound
History of the Yakushiji Temple
