for any music with Shakuhachi
We Started our project having such vision
For the best cool music, you need the highest performing instruments that enable music artists to create richly with leveraging their sensibilities. Shakuhachi, the traditional Japanese musical instrument, has attracted many music enthusiasts because of its unique deep sound, but it is still under developing and evolving as widely used. We are passionate about creating the highest performing shakuhachi that many can get. The idea was to redefine shakuhachi as a “musical instrument” that music artists can freely perform, rather than just a FOLK music instrument, and to produce the highest performing shakuhachi instruments. While working as a shakuhachi artist, Yukihiko Mitsuka, who has been developing and producing high-performance bamboo shakuhachi for his own performance and professional musicians for more than 40 years, strictly quantifies the ultimate structural design value finally arrived. And by faithfully reproducing that structual design with Japan’s advanced metalworking technology, we reache to the best instrument Metal Shakuhachi “Katana”.
We will pursue our activities with the philosophy of “the best instrumets for the best music”.
