Spreading the charms of Japan to the world from Fukui



People who pave the way

We just released the video of Masaaki Kimura on our GEN's website,

performing Michael Hedges’s “Ritual Dance", in a music cheering group

”Jonetsu Gundan" (Passionate Group)'s music live show at Bhutan Museum

on February 28th, 2016.


Kimura is a deaf player, and even though I heard that he plays his own special guitar,

still I can never imagine how he can play it without hearing.


Kimura has learned to play the guitar mostly on his own.

Because Michael Hedges has also been as known as an unique musician for his original style,

I thought that Kimura picked the right piece.


They both have paved the way.

I see the strength from Kimura’s gentle smile.
