Plan description

★Cool Live&Lesson Enjoy Japanese flute★
Shinobue is a traditional musical instrument made of bamboo and has been used since ancient times for the festivals, a kagura (sacred music) and a shishimai (lion dance).​ ​
As a classical Japanese music, shinobue is used in kabuki and noh theaters as well as in a puppet theater along with shakuhachi, shamisen and hand-drums.

This course is conducted by Ikkan Fukuhara, a shinobue musician with more than 20 years of experience and who is also an ambassador of Miyajima Tourism. The lesson with shinobue live concert would definitely be your priceless experience.​ ​
In this course you will learn to handle a shinobue and play a traditional music「SAKURA」.​
​ ​Playing flutes originally supposed to call God.
At Daisho-in temple with more than thousand years of history, you can enjoy a shinobue music, a unique timbre of prayer, joy and nostalgia which has been played over thousand years.​ ​
※English speaking guide is available.

Beauty of Japanese Clothing

The instructor performs in formal clothing hakama.

Also a hand drum, a unique traditional instrument will be played, and we expect that a joint performance of a hand drum and shinobue in formal clothing will make Japanese traditional culture more attractive.
