Japanese Harp (Koto) Class in the center of Kyoto

Back to nearly 1300 years ago, Nara-era, Chinese Koto and Japanese Koto which seemed to be made in Yayoi-era were combined and gradually refined by people who loved music. As time goes on, more and more people had got attracted by Koto because of the “Shirabe” which healed and silently encouraged people’s hearts. Nowadays, we’re going through busy days surrounded by so many objects. Listening to the sound of Koto makes our bodies and hearts remind of old memories. There are two styles of playing the koto. One is the Ikuta style, which uses square-edged picks, and the other style is the Yamada style, which uses round-edged picks. Taking classes in koto playing will be especially interesting for people who have experience in playing string instruments, but beginners will also most surely enjoy taking lessons at a koto schools in Japan. We highly recommend trying it!
