[Children's Dream Fund] Children's Koto Experience Project

(Application period: March to the end of July, 2022 for the first semester / August to the end of November, 2022 for the second semester.

(5 times during the first semester from July to August 2022 / 11 times during the second semester from November to April 2022)

We provide an opportunity for children today, who have few opportunities to come into contact with traditional Japanese music and instruments in their daily lives, to hear, see, and touch the koto, to learn about its history and tone, and to play it. At the recital, they can experience a full-fledged stage performance surrounded by professionals. In addition to the joy of being able to play a piece on a Japanese musical instrument, this project allows children to naturally learn about the importance of traditional Japanese culture and how to behave.


This workshop will be held between April 2022 and March 2023.

Please check the details below and apply by e-mail.

Target] Preschoolers, elementary school students, junior high school students, and high school students aged 3 years and older.
