About the Online
International Shakuhachi
Video Competition

    During the last three years we have been working diligently with the Organizing Committee to realize the WSF 2022 and share it with the world-wide shakuhachi community. Despite our best efforts, however, travel remains a difficult and complex issue for many of us living around the world. It is important that we consider everyone’s safety and well being above all else and follow government guidelines for travel and entry into China.

    Nonetheless, we are planning together with the Hougaku Journal to host an international video competition online for all shakuhachi players from around the world. Starting next month, we will be taking registrations for the online event which will be happening from May through to August for shakuhachi players and their accompanists to join. We hope you will be interested in participating, playing, and submitting your videos!

    We look forward to sharing more details soon.
