A rare chance to see a live performance of the koto—a traditional Japanese instrument—at Japanese tea cafe Tsukimasa in Tokyo. There will be two koto performers under Ikuta School who play authentic koto music.
There is no entry fee, but you are required to register in advance and order one tea set, starting at ¥500. Contributions of any amount are also welcome, which go towards arranging and transporting the wonderful koto players to come to the venue.
Performances start at 6:30 pm and end at 8 pm. Guests are asked to arrive at least 5–10 minutes early to grab a drink and find a spot.
The venue is a green tea shop and cafe that has been in business since 1978 and has a wide variety of teas to try.
