Experience the world of the traditional Japanese instrument, the koto (a Japanese transverse harp) in a workshop led by internationally renowned koto player Michiyo Yagi and Hiroko Takahashi. The workshop is open to everyone including children and first-time players. You’ll be able to play the familiar Japanese song called ‘Sakura Sakura’ after only an hour.

There will also be a live performance by Michiyo Yagi with a cup of green tea included during the break. The class lasts two hours and includes a 1-hour workshop, a break and a half-hour performance. There are two sessions in the afternoon – one starting at 2pm and another at 3.30pm.
