The lesson of Japanese traditional instrument “KOTO”
Have you ever heard of the sightseeing experience of Japanese traditional instruments?
I guess it might be the only one experience in Kyoto.
Koto is the same sounds as my tea house, but the meaning (Chinese character) is different.
箏=Japanese traditional instrument played with 13 strings.
古都=the old capital of Japan
Please don’t miss this precious experience!
Listening to the elegant sounds of Koto.
I sometimes listen to the Koto music in New Year party of Japanese flower arrangement, or seasonal festivals for shrines. I’ve just listen to the peaceful music in Hirano shrine near my tea house in September.
I always feel a little nostalgic hearing the sounds of traditional Koto.
In 90 minutes experience in Soushunan, we can listen to the music “Sakura”, which is one of the most popular Japanese folk song played by the professional Koto player, who has over 30 years experience.
Since she had played Koto for the concerts in foreign countries, she has taught many foreign students as well as Japanese beginners.
I’m sure it’ll be the precious experience to listen to “Sakura” played by her in the traditional Japanese house in Kyoto Nishijin with a small group.
