KOTO the Japanese harp

This is KOTO that is one of the Japanese traitional musical instruments.
It's like a harp, and has so beautiful tone!

And this is a music.

It is written in kanji numbers.
It seems to be very difficult, but not so much :)

I have played it since I was little.
But now there are few young people who can play KOTO..

Many of them can play the piano and other western musics,
and they have no interests in Japanese ones.
I'm so sad....

This music will heal your soul... Please listen!!

The woman playing KOTO is a granddaughter of my KOTO teacher.

I love their sounds so much :)
