Among those events, music has an important position and never fails to be cheered by the audience. This kind of musical performance is rare but they are well received at the festival, as the expression of Japanese culture and attendees can enjoy them free of extra charges. Minyô, Taiko, Koto, Shamisen concerts but also more exceptional instruments such as Sanshin: there are many occasions to discover this other side of Japan.
