いい日旅立ち・西へ - Ii Hi Tabidachi, Nishi e (Departure on a Fine Day, For the West) (CCCD)

West Japan Railway Company's "Discover the West" advertising campaign song, written by Shinji Tanimura, an ex-member of a famous J-POP band called "Alice". This song used to be sung in 1978 by Momoe Yamaguchi, a legendary female pop star who fascinated the whole country. The lyrics were changed almost entirely for this recording. Recorded early in September, just before Chihiro had throat surgery.
