Learn to play the traditional Japanese musical instrument "KOTO", and enjoy tea ceremony experience, delicious green tea and seasonal Japanese sweets! ^^^^^^^^^^^^ The traditional Japanese stringed instrument, the koto, is renowned for both its healing tones and elegant shape. During this workshop, you will have a chance to play the koto and hear and feel for yourself the echoes of antiquity that ring in each note of this beautiful instrument. First, I'll explain about the history of Koto. Koto has long histroy. And I play the classical Koto song for demonstration. Next, let's learn the tuning of Koto. This instrument has various tunings of scales, but this time we will make a basic tuning together. And next, let's learn how to read the score. It is a unique score that is completely different from the Western score. Then, put the finger picks of Koto and play it together. Feel the beautiful sound you make and enjoy Japanese song! After playing the koto, you will be served matcha green tea and seasonal Japanese sweets in a tea ceremony by a master from the Urasenke tea school. It is a home-like tea ceremony, so let's relax and chat. Spend an emotionally fulfilling time with me in this calming environment to creatively explore and stimulate all five of your senses. We have prepared a variety of workshops which allow participants to explore and hone their five sense

Hi I'm Yumi. I'm a Koto performer and composer. I'm a teacher of Koto and shamisen and also master of tea ceremony of Urasenke school. I believe that Japanese traditional culture has the power to make people's mind peaceful and to heal tiredness. Then I've started activities that people in the world can enjoy Japanese culture. When I was young, I founede an information technology company. In those days I was so dedicated to my work I took the last train home every night. At the time, my consolations were practicing the koto harp and the tea ceremony. I was able to forget my problems and free my mind, which refreshed me. I got hooked on that pleasant feeling. The more deeply I studied them, the more the rich world of Japanese culture enchanted me. I'd like to introduce such a wonderful experience and enjoy it together!
