Tamahime-sama is the debut studio album released by Togawa Jun. The album is Togawa's first release as a solo artist, working outside of her bands. The title track was composed by Hosono Haruomi, the bassist for YMO. The Japanese music magazine Rolling Stone Japan rated the album as the 18th greatest Japanese album of all time [1]. The album has been described as very theatrical and dark, and it contains a large range of musical styles such as electronic to traditional folk, which are often all used in the same song. The cover of the album features Togawa as a dragonfly. During promotional events such as photographs and live performances of songs from the album, Togawa wore dragonfly wings.
