If you are interested in visiting the“Studio Eve” please don't hesitate to send us an email. We are pleased to set an extra live during your stay in Tokyo! "Stringraphy" is the Japanese original musical instrument made of silk strings and paper cups which Kazue Mizushima invented in 1992. About one hundred string telephones transform the space into an immense acoustic "harp". We offer two kinds of concerts, “Stringraphy Live Performance 2018” (Standard concert consists of classical music such as “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” by Mozart, pop music such as “Yesterday” by the Beatles, Japanese animation songs and original composition by Kazue Mizushima etc.) and “Musical Forest 2018” (Concert for Kids and their families).
