Festival SuperPASS

All festival venues

The Festival SuperPASS is an ideal choice for a shakuhachi player of beginner to intermediate level. It provides a valuable insight into the many aspects of the shakuhachi including free entry to concerts of ISFP 2023.

Shakuhachi Workshops
The Shakuhachi Workshops are led by professional players, and are dedicated to participants of beginner to intermediate level.

At ISFP 2023, there will be 18 workshops each 60 to 90 minutes long. The workshop topics cover meditation suizen, tone-production, Kinko-ryū, Tōzan-ryū, Icchoken, Kyoto Myōanji, special techniques, practice routines, music theory, artist presentation. Attending the ISFP workshops is a good way to learn about the variety of genres and styles of shakuhachi. In 2023, Saikawa Buntai, important figure of the Tendai-shu Buddhism will give a unique workshop-presentation on their liturgy – one of the most important foundations of Japanese music as such.
The Shakuhachi Workshops can be visited by holders of ISFP SuperPASS and ISFP FAMILY SuperPASS. Number of participants is not restricted.
