(2006 cultural Agency Selection Preservation Technology certification) "It is not easy task to closer to the sound which is said to be violins from old times. I feel nervous when I put a chord on the completed biwa and make a sound. " We are making all the production and repair of the biwa by hand by the skill of the Takumi who has accumulated the study for "ideal sound". In addition to Satsuma Biwa, we handle the entire biwa of Heike, Chikumae and Gagaku. His son Katsuyoshi, who is also a biwa player, supports the shop as the fifth generation.
