Tuesday was a special day in Sankieien Gardens, Yokohama as this day the community was invited to view the harvest moon. The special event on this night was a concert featuring koto, as played by Hiroko Kodama (my koto instructor) and shakuhachi, as played by Shunzan Shitara.
Imagine sitting within a beautiful Japanese garden, watching the moon rise over a temple spire, and listening to traditional Japanese music, performed outdoors by masters of the art; it was awesome.
