Looking for nohkan teacher in L.A. area. Also looking for more info in english about it. Or contacts with anyone via email about the instrument. (I have already have seen The Japanese language videos that Gishin mentions elsewhere on the forum are very nice.

Hi Chris,
You might contact the Toronto based flutist Ron Korb at
He studied ryuteki here in Japan and may be able to give you some info or direction.

He lives in New York but you could try contacting Kaoru Watanabe (
He has studied some Nohkan in Japan.  He played in Kodo for several years, primarily as a flute player -- including some Nohkan -- but also played taiko.
Check out Tsukiyono off of Kodo's Prism Rhythm CD it's great.

I have recently begun studying shinobue with him.  He is a great player and a nice guy.
