PianoMitsuketa.com – Japan-wide Public Pianos
December 31, 2022
We’re extremely happy to get a tip from a befriended Piano Pilgrim (@Yukena53) about a Japanese (language) website, specialized in Public Pianos on Japanese soil! At the moment we initially visited the site, they aired no less than 180 pianos, hip hip hurray! :-).
Of course, we’re not copying any of their information, just take a deep and humble bow before we point you straight at their website PianoMitsuketa.com (which translates as: “Piano found” or “Piano spotted”.)
If you’re unable to read Japanese language, make sure to put your browser in the continuous translation mode. They’re thoroughly documenting the Public Pianos, deep respect for PianoMitsuketa.com, as well as their extensively described Public Piano etiquettes, wow!
We’ll be happy to contact the noble people behind this website and hopefully learn more about the organization(s?) that actually put those pianos out there. Until then, enjoy their website AND visit the interesting blog on “Overseas street piano event information” (original: “海外のストリートピアノイベント情報”). You’ll find much of our website’s information in this blog, for the simple reason that we granted them access to it. Glad to contribute to an even wider view on World Pianos for our Japanese brothers and sisters!
Last but not least, some-if-not-most of these pianos are closed during the Covid-19/Corona outbreak Q1/Q2 2020, some of them even removed to prevent infections.
