The presenters will also discuss the cultural context of the koto. The Washington Toho Koto Society was founded in 1971, and is a nonprofit group of koto players and friends, primarily in the Washington metropolitan area. Their founder, Kyoko Okamoto, has played and taught koto for more than 50 years, contributing to the promotion of Japanese music and culture in the United States, and promoting friendly relations between the two countries.
