The Iyasaka Project by Miyamoto Unosuke Shoten aims to cultivate traditional Japanese performing arts alongside artists who share traditional instrument makers’ goals. In ancient Japan, festivals and performing arts were held to pray for good harvests and peace within the community. The mystique of traditional Japanese performing arts arises from the spirituality embedded in the arts, transcending mere expressions. The Iyasaka Project proudly showcases Japanese culture to the world by conveying Japanese values inherent in performing arts through concerts, workshops, and other events.
