Very fun and interesting event! very nice host and very professional! i would strongly recommend anyone who is interested in the art of playing koto to go here and take a lesson and have some tea with Harumi-sama. Made me very happy and i learned a lot about koto and to play the song "Sakura Sakura". 5/5 very well worth it!
