Sakai Chikuho is the second Chikuho school master. He
was born in 1933 and passed away on January 31, 1992.
In 1960's and 70's he was a most prominent shakuhachi performer. He was

But even now, his playing is very interesting and suggestive

I would like to introduce one of his recordings. I hope you
listen to and enjoy his Shin-muaiji真霧海?.
