My name is Takako Sasakubo and I am a knitting teacher based in Kanagawa. I have also been playing "Koto" for many years and enjoy teaching others how to play this traditional Japanese instrument. Aside from knitting, koto and tea ceremony, I also love making miso and playing with my dog!

There are few people these days who own Japanese harps, known as "Koto”, making it rare to come across the opportunity to sit down and play one. The host of this experience, Takako, first started playing in elementary school and delights in carrying on the tradition of playing this beautiful stringed instrument. Whether you are new to instruments, or an experienced musician, Takako will work with you at your pace and teach you how to play a song on the Koto from start to finish. Takako also enjoys performing tea ceremony and will treat you to a lesson in this too. Experience authentic "Omotenashi" (Japanese hospitality) and learn how to do the same for your guests. You will not want to miss out on this fabulous opportunity to experience these two unique aspects of Japan culture! == Book Now For Limited Time Beta Special == This experience is currently in Beta!
