Shunsho-no-Hibiki 2019

A Spring evening concert of traditional Japanese music

Venue: Senzokuike Pond When: Wednesday - May 15th 2019

The Shunsho-no- Hibiki Concert was started in 1995 in order to commemorate the completion of the Iketsukihashi Bridge, a triple-arched bridge built on the west bank of Senzokuike Pond, and featured a performance from the great fue master Sanzaemon Takara, a Living National Treasure. At the end of March this year, the bridge finished undergoing its first reconstruction for twenty years. In celebration of the bridge’s completion, this year’s concert will feature a special collaboration between a Noh actor and players of the fue, shakuhachi and hayashi instruments.

Musicians playing flutes, shakuhachi and accompanying percussion are positioned on the illuminated bridge and platforms floating in the water, creating a dream-like atmosphere.

Getting there

An 8-minute walk from Senzokuike Station on the Tokyu Ikegami Line, or from Senzokuike Bus Stop via the Tokyu bus.

Senzokuike Pond is a beautiful location for such a concert. Japanese woodwind instruments have a haunting sound, too.
