<- Sorry, yesterday I wrote "27th", but it's wrong!

I am busy preparing for my trip to London!


Who is the Summer School For?

The Summer School is open to anyone who has an interest in Shakuhachi, including beginners for whom there will also be specialist classes.

I went to a Japanese restaurant “The Ginger Tree.”

I didn’t know that there was such a wonderful Japanese restaurant in Belfast!

I decided to go there often.

One of my shakuhachi friends gave me plastic bags for my shakuhachi.
I appreciate his kindness so much.

This is a basic kit of shakuhachi.

These are other shakuhachi goods of mine.

I bought the blue bag at St.George Market.

As shown, I use chair leg covers as shakuhachi caps, because they are cheap and cute.


I am a Japanese shakuhachi player living in Ireland.
