Get in touch with the sounds of traditional Japan, with this unusual chance to take a koto lesson.

The koto is a traditional musical instrument, a 13-stringed horizontal zither similar to the harp. You play it using finger picks (called tsume) on the right thumb, forefinger, and middle finger. The koto has a lovely nostalgic tone and leaves lingering echos of sound.

There are lots of modern and fusion koto music pieces, as you can tune the chords however you like, making it a very versatile instrument.
