Let`s know more about Koto and let`s play all together "Sakura Sakura" under the guidance of our expert instructor, Ms. Sasano Tomoe.
"Koto" is the sound of Japan!
Koto is also known as "The Japanese Harp" and it was introduced to Japan over 1000 years ago from China. This amazing is 180 cm long and it is made by Paulownia wood, a lightweight hardwood used not only for musical instruments such as guitars, but also for geta (traditional Japanese wooden footwear). Koto can be called a "Noble" instrument since it was played at the Imperial Court till the Edo Period (1603-1868) when, thanks to Yatsuhashi Kengyo, a player of Shamisen who learnt Koto from an official Court player, who made it accessible to everyone.
This amazing instrument features a vibrant sound and 13 strings and movable bridges used for tuning. The player plucks the strings with three fingerpicks on the right hand, precisely on the thumb, index, and middle fingers.
