"The experience was very smooth, friendly and held well. Communication was fast and helpful, and considering I'm in a different country halfway around the world, the flute arrived quickly. It's a beautiful flute, well tuned and well made. Many thanks." - ​J. Mattingley / Indonesia

"I have received my flute today after only 3 or 4 days of enrolling. The response from Shinken Dojo was quick and the words from Zapata Sensei were very encouraging. I hope to learn much from this course. Thank you for the prompt service." -S.Delaune / USA

"He empezado hace unos días el curso de nivel 1 de shakuhachi, y por el momento sólo tengo buenas palabras. El material que se proporciona es muy completo, y la asistencia en el proceso de compra ha sido inmejorable." - R.Suárez / Spain
