Six top-level Japanese musicians have created an ensemble called Aioi (Growing Together). For many years, they have been playing both in Japan and abroad.

The show is 1 hour long and conveniently located only few steps away from major touristic attractions: Harajuku area, Takeshita street, Yoyogi Park, Meiji Jingu Shrine and shopping street Omotesando. During the show musicians will take small intermissions to talk about the musical instruments involved, give information about history of the performed pieces and interact with the audience. Zakuro show will be easy to understand for both Japan residents and travelers. The program consists of traditional music composed hundreds of years ago, famous Japanese contemporary tunes and experimental pieces. The show is Bilingual!
