About your host

As a master of koto, I have taught people from elementary school to elderly people. In Japan, opportunities to touch the koto are becoming fewer. Although I also attend concerts to enjoy the splendor of the tone of the koto played live, there are not many opportunities. Japanese culture will be further revealed through the performance of the koto. Thank you.

What we’ll do

You will learn how to perform on the koto harp at my house, a five-minute walk from Toji Temple. First, I will explain and demonstrate how to play koto. Then you will start practicing one of the most well-known traditional Japanese songs, "Sakura" —cherry blossom—written a long time ago. At the end of the lesson, you will perform in front of the other participants. Don't worry, the maximum number…

We'll meet at Kyoto Station. I will drive you to my house—about a five-minute car ride—and back again afterwards. If you are interested in doing some sightseeing, I will be happy to drop you off at Toji Temple on the way back to the station.
