Myoan (Meian) recordings: Yoshimura Fuan

Hi folks, for those interested in obtaining authentic Myoan shakuhachi recordings by Yoshimura Fuan the 40th head of the Myoan Taizan-ha you may be interested to know that shakuhachi master Yoshio Kurahashi can sell them via PayPal (see his email to me below). Like other limited edition recordings these are expensive, but I believe they are professionally produced on top quality commercial grade Compact Discs (not the cheaper, glichier CD-R stock). Thank you, Tairaku, for the lead!

Torsten Olafsson references him prominently here:

Nancy Beckman of Sebastopol, California studied with Yoshimura Fuan and his predecessor Fukumoto Kyoan. She recieved her license (menkyo kaiden) to teach shakuhachi from Meianji temple. (

Kurahashi-sensei sent me the following email:
