resort instrument factory ASOVIVA yomitan gallery
Asoviva design, develop, and sell handcrafted Okinawan sanshin to the world.
Started in 2006 by Youta Yamazaki, Asoviva is driven by the dream that the sanshin will become an instrument recognized and heard all over the world, in all genres of music.
We have a small group of dedicated staff - talented sanshin players to teach you, and skilled craftworkers to create for you.
We supply beautiful ebony, oak, rosewood, and ironwood sanshin. We have also formed a relationship with the master craftsmen of Koza, who supply all of the necks for our Hongawa sanshin.
Our modern Tropication line sanshin are original designs. They reflect the spirit and beauty of island culture and show the sanshin to truly be a universal instrument.
Every aspect of our sanshin are carefully considered. From doumaki to karakui, we believe the quality and originality of our sanshin will help us reach our dream.
