Gagaku duets “Kukuri”

There is wonderful traditional music as Gagaku in Japan.
Gagaku is the oldest music in Japan, and koto music and a shamisen are most roots of the Japanese music which connects today.

● Gagaku is music of the God who forms a connection.

“Kukuri” is the only conjugal court music of Japan unit in Japan.Husband’s hometown is Aichi-ken and my wife is from Kobe.
Met by chance in learning who was born and raised in different lands will be held in the Grand shrine of ISE “Gagaku”, I got married.

I named our unit name “Kukuri” from the “Kukuri princess” who is a god in “Shirayamahime shrine” in Ishikawa-ken.
Kukuei princesses are a person, a person and the God who binds a matter up.
We’d like also to link the various ones from all over the world to a court music of Japan duet “Kukuri” through Gagaku.

It seems generally difficult for Gagaku. But our Gagaku sympathizes by the music which eases tension, and is the check which flooded love.
The person who hears emancipates a heart and puts on a smile, and it’ll be warm feeling.

Our Gagaku is a trigger and there is a person who got married.
