Morihiro Iwamoto is a Japanese composer and video game composer associated with TOSE, producing works for over 250 games, as well as some animation and film works. He is also the representative of Sora Color, a Japanese company for aerial photography (which also produces videos of aerial photographs with music possibly composed by him).

He started working for TOSE around 1995, starting out on the Game Boy

TOSE usually outsources their works and do not own the copyright (or often attribution) to the works, however, Iwamoto is known for scoring all songs in the The Legendary Starfy series (note the original title was also worked on by Yōko Matsutani to some unknown extent), in which TOSE are fully credited and jointly own the rights to the series with Nintendo.

Besides the Starfy series, Morihiro has also worked on several games in the Bomberman series, as well as composing TOSE's travel guide series on the DS, Tabi no Yubisashi Kaiwachou DS (The Traveler's Phrasebook DS).

Music Development


Morihiro used Nintendo's MP2K sound engine.
