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. 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. While enjoying the tea and sweets, you will be treated to a live koto performance. This cultural experience is set in a traditional historic house near Ginkakuji Temple and surrounded by the seasonal beauty of Kyoto. Spend an emotionally fulfilling time with me in this calming environment to creatively explore and stimulate all five of your senses.
