I had a great lesson today. Kaeda San is an energetic and patient teacher and she gears the lesson to the student. I would highly recommend a lesson to anyone who is interested in Japanese culture and or music.

Before this I just feel it will be good. Now I know it was unforgettable. We could create our own experience during our holliday. What's more we could touch an old Japan tradition with our hands and hearts.
