Seihou (西方) is a series of games related to the Touhou series but not created by ZUN directly; rather, the Seihou series is produced by former members of Amusement Makers who later formed Syunsatsu Sare Do. Seihou means "western," as opposed to Touhou, which means "eastern."
Several Touhou characters have made appearances in the Seihou games, such as Reimu Hakurei and Marisa Kirisame in Shuusou Gyoku, as well as Yuuka in Kioh Gyoku. Additionally, in the game Samidare, a certain area in the Extra stage is dedicated to Touhou, as the midboss battle is a reference to the Stage 4 boss battle in Mystic Square, as they act like Yuki and Mai (as well, you can faintly see Yuki and Mai in the boss sprites; they are little more than spheres of light, but when they stop moving, the pair of magicians become briefly visible).
