    Take a Koto Lesson at a Traditional House in Kyoto

    Take a Koto Lesson at a Traditional House in Kyoto Our koto lesson with Mrs Harumi Shimazaki was a very precious and moving
    experience. Please please also read what Dory my wife has written (in
    French) about this same lesson, in which she adds quite a number other
    very touching details which I have not mentioned here.

    It was very helpful to have coordination via email (we were glad to have
    our rented mobile WiFi device) with the Voyagin office to fix the time and place of
    our lesson.

    To be on the safe side we had arrived much earlier than the scheduled
    time. A kind neighbour helped us find the exact location of the dwelling
    of Mrs Shimazaki and told her that we had arrived.

    Harumi graciously proposed to give us the lesson immediately. But we
    felt we should not disrupt her schedule, so we went off and returned for
    our lesson at the appointed time. Also present were Harumi's mother and
    daughter.

    Of course in the short time available we could only take the very first
    steps towards producing some of the very beautiful sounds of the koto.
    Nevertheless we could gain some initial familiarities with the various
    subtleties of different kinds of plucking and touching of the strings
    which can produce a range of different and touching effects.
    I suppose it was of some help that we have some limited familiarity
    with western music, being (very) amateur players of the violin and
    piano, respectively.
    Harumi chose to teach us to play a simple version of the celebrated
    Japanese melody "Sakura" (Cherry blossom). This included reading the
    notes of this melody from a page in which they were written, using
    traditional Japanese musical notation, some elements of which we
    could just begin to understand. She was very patient and
    attentive, and also during some parts of the lesson she gave us
    free rein to improvise and explore for ourselves, and thus experience some
    small part of the wide range of sounds and effects that the koto can
    produce.

    Another particularly beautiful and moving part of the lesson occurred
    when Harumi sometimes joined by her mother on the second koto, played
    a number of pieces for us, with, as we felt, great skill and devotion.

    As a touching souvenir of this remarkable lesson we were given the
    above mentioned pages which we had used when beginning to
    play "Sakura".

    Throughout the lesson Harumi and her mother and daughter, all made us feel
    very welcome indeed in their home. We found ourselves also speaking with
    them of other things, beyond the subject of our lesson. We hope we did
    not abuse their hospitality by staying too long. They certainly did not
    show any kind of impatience with us.

    It must be quite difficult to make the translation between Japanese
    musical notation and European musical notation, but maybe somewhere,
    sometime a friendly website can be set up to do this, if it does not
    exist already. Then people like us can be invited to visit that website
    before and/or after our lesson.

    En consultant l’internet pour préparer notre premier voyage de découverte du Japon, j’ai eu la chance de trouver un site qui proposait une leçon de koto, cet instrument si fin et si délicat, qui nous fait rêver à des voyages lointains et exotiques. Sans avoir trop d’espoirs sur notre capacité à assimiler en une leçon la technique nécessaire pour jouer un air japonais, j’étais très curieuse de voir et de toucher cet instrument. Dès notre arrivée au Japon, j’attendais impatiemment notre rencontre avec Mme Harumi Shimazaki à Kyoto.
    Nous avons été reçus si gentiment par Harumi, sa maman et sa fille dans sa maison. Trois générations de femmes sensibles, gentilles et fines, toutes trois musiciennes.
    Nous avons fait connaissance autour d’une tasse de thé que Harumi avait gentiment préparé pour nous, puis nous sommes allés vers une salle où se trouvaient deux kotos, celui de Harumi et celui de sa mère. Michael, mon mari, était élève d’Harumi et moi de sa maman. Harumi nous a expliqué comment porter des petits onglets d’ivoire sur nos doigts, puis nous avons commencé à gratter et pincer les treize longues cordes de nos kotos, selon les indications écrites dans des petits cahiers joliment recouverts de papiers colorés. Michael s’est montré bon élève et il était possible de reconnaitre Sakura, la jolie chanson de printemps japonaise. Moi j’ai buté longuement sur un accord, mais mon professeur a été si patiente que j’ai fini par comprendre comment appuyer sur la corde avec la main gauche et gratter deux autres cordes avec la droite !
    Michael a alors essayé d’improviser sur l’instrument. Puis Harumi accompagnée de sa mère nous a joué quelques airs de musique classique ancienne japonaise et Sakura, comme elle seule peut le jouer. Partant de cet air si simple, elle a interprété des variations qu’elle a écrites avec une grande virtuosité et une grande sensibilité, nous faisant découvrir des sonorités inconnues, frêles parfois, imposantes et profondes d’autres fois. La quintessence des merveilleuses chansons célébrant le printemps et le passage du temps. J’ai alors ressenti à nouveau combien la musique pouvait nous rapprocher, Harumi, sa mère et sa fille, d’une part et Michael et moi, de l’autre. Tous héritiers de cultures très anciennes et très riches, et qui partageons des grandes difficultés dans nos vies, nos cœurs s’attendrissent en entendant le chant du printemps éphémère. Et ce moment de partage ne s’effacera pas dans nos mémoires.

    Watch Early Morning Sumo Training in Tokyo at a Sumo Stable

    Watch Early Morning Sumo Training in Tokyo at a Sumo Stable Watching Sumo Training was very cool. The guide we had was really clear on email and even gave us directions from where I was staying. He was knowledgeable and on time.

    The training was really interesting, and we watched various training exercises. We also received a document which detailed further information on the history of Sumo and explained what we would be watching as you are not allowed to talk during the training. Overall a really cool experience!

    Watch Early Morning Sumo Training in Tokyo at a Sumo Stable

    Watch Early Morning Sumo Training in Tokyo at a Sumo Stable We had a great time at the stable. Only draw back was that we waited to long for people that arrived late, which meant we came into the stable when they started already and had to sit really squeezed as there was another big group before us. I would still recommend this to anyone.
