Enjoy a concert with The Chicago Koto Group. The koto is a Japanese plucked half-tube zither instrument, and is a national instrument of Japan.

The Chicago Koto Group was founded in 1985 by Akiko Sugano in order to serve the greater Chicago community by introducing it to Japanese culture and music. They hold several public performances a year responding to requests from various organizations such as the Chicago Botanic Gardens and the Consulate General of Japan. They also serve to educate students at elementary schools, high schools, and colleges about Japanese culture through the music of the koto and shakuhachi (traditional Japanese instruments).
