Concert of the Airs is a unique collaboration between American and Japanese performers using the voice along with Western and Japanese instruments. The venue is Chihan’an, a 250 year old traditional country house in Ohito, a scenic town surrounded by mountains and bamboo groves in the middle of the Izu Peninsula. Chihan’an is a seven minute walk from Ohito Station.
There will be two performances on Saturday, March 5th: an afternoon matinee beginning at 1:30 PM and an evening concert from 6:30 PM. The evening concert will end in time to catch a train back to Tokyo from Ohito.
