20 years of flute making !


Quite surprinsing how the traditional new year wishes aren’t joyfull as usual;
adding “…” or formulas like “despite…” reflecting the uncertainty of the times…
Nevertheless, I wish you all a year richer in freedom and joy (we still have some power on that hopefully !)

This years, no changes on prices at Atelier Chikudo.
Some available shakuhachi have discount prices for this new year !

I decided to stop making students model in order to focus on traditional shakuhachi and restaurations.

So my advice for beginners with low budget is to acquire a Shakuhachi YUU which is made from ABS resin copied from a good quality ji-ari shakuhachi. It is the best Price/quality ratio possible…
…but not from bamboo !
You can order them from Ebay, Amazon or directly from the website :
