We are members of Music Line Kotomu and treasure the sound of acoustic taishogoto. In Japanese “music” translates to “happy sound”. And that is exactly what we strive towards, to make music fun and worthwhile. The joy of performing, the joy of friendship, the joy of life. Such joys and more are the wishes that we strive towards through the sound of taishogoto and our group Kotomu. Our members range from 6 to 90 years of age. Each of us enjoy taishogoto in our own way. It is our way of life. We want more people to love and appreciate this small instrument. Please listen to the magnificent tremor and echo of the gentle strings.
