Dear customer, prices on this
website are only indicative, since the final price depends on the Euro/Yen
currency rate. Since the Yen became much weaker recently,
prices have dropped. This is probably
the best time to purchase your Kohno-Sakurai guitar! The prices
mentioned below are indicating prices, as they fluctuate with the
rate of the Yen.
We do ship abroad (insured) with Fedex. Shipments arrive in 3 to 4 days. You can be sure your well boxed and packed guitar will arrive safely and in good condition.

Kokoro, or Japanese for "passion from the hart" reflects the passion used to build Kohno-Sakurai guitars.
The result is an instrument that reflects the spirit of its player, being a combination of passion for music, and the passion that belies in the instrument that reflects the soul of the one that plays it.
Waza means craftmanship. It stands for knowledge passed on from Kohno to Sakurai, regarding wood, technique and finishing. It beholds the eye for detail and love for the art of instrument construction.
