What you'll do
Instagram:@ymctokyo Get ready to see the authentic side of Tokyo's cultural family home! Join me on a workshop that will take you back in time to the 8th century for 2 hours. Visit the eastern town of Tokyo,wear handmade kimono,play the traditional musical instruments,enjoy Japanese tea ceremony and taste sweets in Kimono! I prepared the Special Autumn Music Program! It'a special price only now! You can learn how to play two Japanese traditional and historical instruments, the 13-stringed ”KOTO” (Japanese Harp) and the three-stringed ”SANSHIN”(Japanese Guitar). You’ll learn 2～3 songs, including the famous song “Sakura Sakura.” By the end of our lesson, you will be able to play them by yourself. You can also try my kimonos which my grandmother's handmade, so they’re very special and unique.We have kimonos not only for women,but also men and children. And you can buy them for your souvenir. These kimonos are not mass produced. Finally, I’ll teach you the proper way to make ”MATCHA” (Japanese green tea). My mother is a master of the tea ceremony. The secret is transmitted from mother to daughter. You can enjoy traditional matcha tea and sweets while we talk about Japanese culture and history. I'm very flexible with dates and time. Please send me message for the availability! Feel free to contact us;) You’re more than welcome to join my experience with your family

I have been playing Koto (13 strings Japanese Harp) since I was 5 years old,and perform it at festivals and events. I won an excellent prize in the Sanshin contest sponsored Okinawa Newspaper in 2013 and 2017. Only a few people can play both Koto and Sanshin, because they are very traditional and it's difficult to keep studying. I have a license of Japanese music(koto and Sanshin) and love sharing the culture with visitors to Tokyo . My husband and I traveled around the world from 2014-2016 as honeymoon. We visited more than 50 countries, and could have a great cherish time with our international friends! Now we decided to open our cozy home for visitors to Japan to share the love and hospitality that we received when we were traveling. We are really looking forward to talking about the difference between Japan and your country.
