Theme of Eastern Story
- For other uses, see Theme of Eastern Story (disambiguation).
Theme of Eastern Story (テーマ・オブ・イースタンストーリー Tēma obu īsutansutōrī), named as such in Akyu's Untouched Score vol.5, is a song composed by ZUN which serves as the title screen theme in most Windows Touhou Project games. It's thought to be the main theme for the series itself due to the number of times it appears throughout the series. The first physical appearance of the melody appears in the intro sequence of Lotus Land Story, and would later be used in the extra stage theme of Shuusou Gyoku. Later on it appears in the title screen of almost every Windows game, as well as various other songs.

While "Theme of Eastern Story" appears on Akyu's Untouched Score vol.5, which is a collection of songs from Highly Responsive to Prayers, it was not actually composed for the game - it's a bonus track composed by ZUN just for the album.
