Koto Performance at Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens

 

Lafcadio Koto 1

 

The Koto is a traditional stringed instrument made from Kiri wood. It has 13 strings that are usually strung over 13 movable bridges along the width of the instrument. Players can adjust the string pitches by moving the white bridges before playing. To play the instrument, the strings are plucked using three finger picks, otherwise known as plectra.
