Accordion experience: When I was a child, my mother gave me a mouth-harmonica.
I loved that instrument and played many nice melodies, which I liked. So,
I liked the sound of the reads. When I experienced the real accordion on
several occasions at later date, I became an accordion fun. But, I could
not have the chance to learn playing accordion before I got a chance to
get a lesson by a retired senior musician from Hamburg in Germany. Since
then, I am a hobby accordion player.
Since Fall 2004, I started to trade the accordion and am trying to offer
the quality products to the Japanese accordion fans with the repair and
maintenance service. I am trying to challenge the tuning, which should
however still come.
It would be a great honor to introduce the high quality accordions and
the accordions with the value for money to the Japanese accordion fans
and to the Japanese market, which should still grow, even the growth is
It will be also a great pleasure to exchange information, thoughts, experience
of the instrument, players, musics, world wide, related to accordion. You
are very welcomed to join the GUEST BOOK on this web site. It might be
a rare chance to communicate with the Japanese accordion fans for you too.
