  The Chikumeisha was established as a body of professional shakuhachi performers in 1921, centered around Shiro YAMAGUCHI. When he passed away in November 1963, his son Goro YAMAGUCHI continued in his father's footsteps and further developed the tradition. Regrefully, Goro YAMAGUCHI passed away on January 3, 1999, due to illness, but his disciples who had been studying his art has continued the Chikumeisha guild since.
By means of our various actvities we are trying stay in touch with those who want to learn about and study the wonderful art forms our teachers transmitted.

We would happy to hear from anybody who is interested.
