Wind Resonance Concert

The annual concerts have been held by Fuuchousha at Daiji-in in Daitoku-ji temple since 1998. The anniversary recital on the 10th year was held at the Ostu Noh Theatre Hall beside Lake Biwa.
Daitoku-ji temple is one of the most historical Zen temples in Kyoto. Famous monk Ikkyu Sojun, who was said to have very unique behaviours as a monk, used to lead the temple at Muromachi period (14-16 century). During Sengoku period (c.16 century) a lot of samurai lords and masters of tea ceremony donated their own temples, and now there remain 22 temples in the area. Daiji-in is one of those temples and was founded by a war lord, Tachibana in Kyushu.
