Enjoy the beautiful Japanese Country side!

And also listen to some classical music for Piano duet in a re-built Zen temple

The Seiler Piano Duo (Ernst Seiler and his wife Kazuko) is giving recitals of music for one piano, four hands, in their re-built Zen temple in Goma. The building stems from 1784, is straw thatched and is a National Registered Cultural Building.

It takes about one hour from Kyoto by train to get there, another 18 minutes to walk through rice fields to their home. The train ride offers exceptionally beautiful views of unspoiled landscape, the village of Goma is like something out of an old story book. The Seilers playing has been acclaimed throughout the world. There are some refreshments (omotenashi) served during intermission(homemade cake and drink, as well as a rice ball (o-nigiri) )for everyone at the end of the concerts. The rice is grown on the Seilers farm.
