Creating Strings for Instruments
Music is an important aspect of culture. When the Japanese hear traditional Japanese instruments, they sense the tradition of Japan in the tones. For instance, Japanese melody played on the ”koto” during New Year’s programs on TV definitely bring a sense of ”Japanese sound” to those who hear it.
Completed each and every string with utmost care
”Marusan Hashimoto” manufactures strings for Japanese instruments. Surprisingly, they produce over 350 types of strings according to the instrument and their different pitch. The procedure is extremely delicate as the strength and size of the string affects the pitch that is produced. Because of this, all 19 steps in creating the strings are done completely by hand at Marusan Hashimoto.
