Koto Player Shares a Piece of Japan’s Culture with Awwwards Ceremony Attendees in Tokyo
Design professionals from across the globe met in Tokyo in January to find inspiration, impart knowledge and experience, connect, and share constructive, respectful critiques at the Awwwards.
One of the many renowned international Tech events Scarlett Entertainment works with every year, on this occasion we’re proud to have delivered the entertainment for the Awwwards’ Digital Thinkers Conference.
The event brought together the best agencies and leaders in the world of digital design. Attended by over 500 professionals, the conference was a space to share ideas and get inspiration from. With this in mind, event planners got in touch with our Account Manager Carla Shaw, who helped them find the local entertainment option they were looking for.
Event organisers contacted Carla with the idea of hiring traditional Japanese entertainment. The idea was to surprise attendees with an opening background performance that would take place as guests arrive on the first day of the conference. Looking for something that could be enjoyed as a background performance rather than a main show, event planners ended up opting for live koto music.
Our Koto Player delighted attendees with a selection of traditional Japanese music. Dressed in a stunning traditional red dress, our musician captivated audiences with the beauty of her performance and her mesmerising and delicate way of playing her instrument.

Truly satisfied with our musician’s performance, the Awwwards’ event organisers shared the below comment with us after the event:
The koto player sounded amazing and looked beautiful, we were very happy with her performance!
Koto is a Japanese harp or long zither. Originated in China, it was introduced to Japan centuries ago and ever since, it’s been an essential instrument in the music history of this country. A popular entertainment option for those looking to bring a genuine Japanese touch to an event, koto players are available for bookings in Japan and worldwide.
