Traditional Japanese video game music by Mae at 2:32 PM EDT on May 31, 2022
Hi all! Hopefully this type of thread is allowed here, if not please feel free to delete.

I got into learning to rip music from game files specifically to access tracks from more obscure games. Among these are a fair amount of music using traditional Japanese music and I'm enjoying it a lot.

Would anyone be able to recommend more video game music in this style? Thank you!

Here are some examples:

It might be helpful to list the games you mention instead of relying on people checking out the Zip file download, for reference the games are: Dairoku, Men of Yoshiwara, Olympia Soiree

You might want to check out the Famicom Shin Onigashima. Also the Goemon series, I'd recommend the N64 games in particular, here's a track from Mystical Ninja.

Some random titles for your shakuhachi, koto and taiko needs (some a bit orchestra/western fusion but still may be interesting to check):

Tokyo Mono Harashi
Izuna 1/2
Ken ga Kimi
Oboro Muramasa
Ogre Tale
Nioh 1/2
Shiren the Wanderer
Way of the Samurai

Thanks so much everyone for the suggestions!

Yes, I apologise for not listing the games associated with the songs I posted: Dairoku: Ayakashimori, The Men of Yoshiwara, and Olympia Soiree.

I have some suggestions. I won't repeat what anyone's already said, other than to say that almost any Mystical Ninja/Goemon title is worth checking out, and there are many of them. Otherwise...

Martial Champion [Arcade]
Mystic Warriors: Wrath of the Ninjas [Arcade]
Honkaku Shougi Fuuunji Ryuuou [SNES]
Itou Hatasu Rokudan no Shougi Dojo [SNES]
Nobunaga no Yabou: Haouden [SNES]
Shougi Saikyou [SNES]
Super Shougi 2 [SNES]
Rabbit [Sega Saturn]
Bushido Blade [Playstation]
Pocky & Rocky/Pocky & Rocky 2 [SNES]
DS Bimoji Training [Nintendo DS]
Kekkaishi: Karasumori Ayakashi Kidan [Nintendo DS]
Tengai Makyo: Kabuki Ittou Ryoudan [PC-CD]

Not all of these are start-to-finish traditional Japanese styled, but probably the lion's share is in all cases.
