Discover a whole new world broadening with music across all ages—from infants to adults

Tokyo Bunka Kaikan’s music workshop program was born out of the desire to get more people enjoying the wonder of music in more casual and accessible ways. The aim of the initiative is to nurture generosity and richness of spirit through participatory workshops that foster self expression and communication skills, and raise awareness and interest in music and the arts.
Tokyo Bunka Kaikan’s workshops are participatory education programs open to anyone from children to adults. In them, people will develop their creativity and spirit of cooperation while they experience the joy of genre transcending music.
