I had a Japanese themed corporate event and Saeko came with a friend to play duet Koto music. They were in full Japanese costume and brought everything that was needed. I didn't have to worry about anything. They were so good and all the tenants in the building enjoyed the music! She was on time and played beautifully. I recommend her to anyone looking for some music entertainment for a large or small crowd.
Response from Saeko Kujiraoka -Japanese Koto Music:
Thank you for sending good review.
I couldn’t forget to play Koto in beautiful garden.
If you have any event in the future, I’m happy to have Koto performance.
Thank you so much!
