Our old friend Yoshida Koichi has written to tell me he has a show coming up next week in Gion. Along with Koichi’s shakuhachi (Japanese flute) there will be a pianist and bass player performing a set of jazz classics such as Take Five, Summertime and In a Sentimental Mood. There will also be a joint performance with a biwa (Japanese lute) player. The performance is next Wednesday (July 22nd) from 20:00 ~ 22:00. The charge is 2000 yen plus another 1000 yen for a drink. The location is the bar “Funny Company” (Tel: ０７５－５６１－８６７１).
Here is a most convenient map.
