Koto is a traditional stringed musical instrument. The beautiful sound of the koto is familiar to everyone, however many people haven't had chances to strum their fingers across the strings yet. The Koto no Wa offers a beginner's chance to enjoy the sound, learn the basic techniques and how to read the music in a relaxed atmosphere.

This workshop is presented by Midori Furze who also does our Origami workshops. Her mother is an Ikuta Miyagi Koto School teacher and Midori has learnt Koto and Shamisen from a young age, and performed at many venues since she was 4 years old.
