Let's learn Japanese instrument Koto at cozy Kyo-machiya house! Koto, Japanese traditional instrument, seems difficult to play and try for beginners. However, at Soushunan, the lesson by the professional instructor enables you to play one song in 80min.

What to Expect

Learn to play a classic song, "Sakura," on the 13 stringed koto. We prepare everything needed for the class, just join in ready to play! This is the lesson that people of all ages can enjoy. It's also recommended to join with your family.
