That "female Japanese composer" is Tamayo Kawamoto. She did a ton of work for Capcom in the early 80s and did a lot of their memorable work. Later she became part of Sega's in-house "SST Band" members of which then later became Taito's in-house music and sound group "Zuntata" who are probably one of the most kick-ass video game composer collective in history. (Zuntata technically still exists, but is now entirely new people from their golden age of the 90s and since Taito doesn't make many games anymore, the last few signature Zuntata games were the Space Invaders Infinity games and Darius Burst)
Kawamoto composed a ton of great stuff, not the least of which is her work on the "Ray" series (RayForce/RayStorm/RayCrisis) She left Zuntata to go solo and compose j-pop-esque stuff as "Betta Flash" but she hasn't released much since then.
'tom brier' will link to another of his videos on this site.
It's weird that ragtime had such a stealth resurgence in 1980s 8-bit soundtracks.
ragtime on piano is an underrated sport
