For three years now the Senju Flying Orchestra has continued its journey, bringing sounds down from out of the sky. This year Otomo Yoshihide produces a new type of festival in the Adachi fish market, jam-packed with unique stalls, from fried noodle stands to something now one has ever seen, and of course the Senju Flying Orchestra “musical kites.” We are aiming at a festival like none other, one that is both in the good ol’ style, and one that is brand-new.

The Senju Flying Orchestra

Centered around musician Otomo Yoshihide, this is a project developed in Adachi City’s Senju area.
