Sho player ready to show his stuff

Five pairs of Japan Times readers will be invited to a recital by sho player Naoyuki Manabe on Oct. 22 in Tokyo.

The sho is a traditional free-reed mouth organ used in gagaku, a style of Japanese music more than 1,300 years old.

The recital will start at 7 p.m. at Hamarikyu Asahi Hall and features a traditional melody for three sho, and contemporary compositions for sho and violin, and solo sho.

Those interested should send a postcard to: Naoyuki Manabe Recital Ticket, The Japan Times-gakari, Collecta, Villa Royal Hirakawa 208, Hirakawa-cho 1-7-5, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo 102-0093. The postcard must include your name, age and address, and arrive on or before Oct. 5.

For ordinary tickets, call Ticket PIA at (0570) 02-9990.

Hamarikyu Asahi Hall is close to the A2 exit of Tsukiji Shijo subway station on the Oedo line.
