Since we are all playing a Japanese instrument and many of us have somewhat a close relationship with Japan... I can't help thinking of the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan almost a year ago also when I am on the forum.
I tend to forget in my busy everyday life that the difficulties and trouble that began at that moment 12 March 2011 still continues and is a part of everyday life of many people in the area of Tohoku.

So let's remember and perhaps continue to help in some ways.

What are you going to do on the 12 March?

I will go to the Japanese Ambassador's residence where they will have a small official commemoration. A choir led by a Danish-Japanese conductor will sing and I will play. I somehow wanted to do something more.... how to put it... create an event to raise the awareness.... but didn't manage to do so.

I will surely practice Tamuke and Eko.

The past year my Shakuhachi group has donated all raised money to the victims of the catastrophe. This includes all € from every concerts of our Sensei.

We must not forget that Fukushima is still going on. The desaster is not over. Still there is radioactive water going directly to the ocean.

Gunnar Jinmei Linder will be playing at a charity concert to commemorate the one-year anniversary. I will accompany him on two pieces: Shika no tone and a ren-kan version of Sanya sugagaki.

More interestingly the organizer, Shia Eguchi-san, has made an arrangement for a string quartet to play Taki-otoshi no kyoku with Gunnar. I heard a brief part of the rehearsal today: It sounds wonderful.

The concert will be at Gustaf Adolfs Kyrka in Östermalm in Stockholm.
