Japan achieved success in the late 1970s and early 1980s, releasing nine UK Top 40 hits, including the 1982 Top 10 hit "Ghosts", and scoring aUK Top 5 with the live album Oil on Canvas (1983). The band split in 1982, just as they were beginning to experience significantcommercial success in the UK and abroad. Its members went on to pursue other musical projects, though they reformed briefly in the early1990s under the name Rain Tree Crow, releasing an album in 1991.
