Activities of ZAKURO SHOW

From November 2018, at the perfect location in the Omotesando/Harajuku area of Tokyo, we organize general admission ZAKURO SHOW concerts where guests can discover the beauty of traditional Japanese instruments such as the Japanese harp Koto, 17-string bass harp Jushichigen, Shamisen, Japanese flute Shakuhachi, and Taiko drums.


In 2019, we held a special project, "Concert of Japanese Musical Instruments for Kids," and introduced children and their parents to Japanese musical instruments to play and listen to.

In 2020, we were forced to refrain from activities due to COVID-19. With the cooperation of the art support project "Cheer for Art!" and "Arts for the Future!," we have continued to hold concerts and online projects. ​

The regular concerts finally resumed in the spring of 2023 after the long COVID-19 pandemic.

We will continue to deliver great music and sincerely ask for your continued support!
