Wagoto K.K.
Since its establishment in 2018 by Hogaku Hayashi performer Fukuhara Tsurujuro, Wagoto has hosted the concert series, “Wagoto hogaku live.” As well as “Ii ne, Oedo” (I like Oedo) and “Ohayashi concert” events, the group runs numerous friendly and informal events like workshops and lectures which make traditional Japanese music enjoyable and accessible. Its activities are designed to promote and disseminate Hogaku, such as the production and distribution in 2020 of an educational DVD for elementary and junior high schools in Tokyo which introduces traditional Japanese music and musical instruments in an easy-to-understand way.
