Toru Takemitsu wrote a number of pieces for traditional Japanese instruments, including the biwa. It's modern classical music, though, not folk music, so it might not be exactly what you're looking for (I've never seen Kwaidan).
But give it a shot -- you might love it! There's a CD called 'In an Autumn Garden' (
