Koto (Japanese Harp) Recital and Experience <Every other Saturdays at 2pm and 3pm> at NARA Visitor Center & Inn


This program explores the intriguing world of Japanese traditional music through the Koto. The Koto is a traditional musical instrument (like a harp but horizontal) which has 13 strings and is played with finger picks on the right thumb, forefinger, and middle finger. It is characterized by its changing beautiful tone and lingering echo of sound. There is a lot of Western-style inspired koto music due it's variety of chords. The Koto is sometimes played in jazz sessions. In this program participants will have a unique chance to learn and play a simple piece.
