Master shamisen player Hirokazu Fujii performs jiuta, considered one of the most distinctive styles of music in the pleasure quarters of Kyoto and Osaka, the world described in the novel, "Memoirs of a Geisha."

Hirokazu Fujii is a third-generation head of Ginmeikai School a position he inherited from his mother, Kunie Fujii, who was selected as one of the Living National Treasures of Japan. The school was founded by his grandmother, Keiko Abe. As a young boy, Hirokazu played the 13-stringed koto under his mother's supervision and was later given instruction on the 3-stringed sangen from his grandmother. Passionate about sharing the beauty of jiuta (a style of Japanese traditional music), he teaches across eight cities, performs regularly on TV and radio, and has toured the United States, Canada and Europe. Hirokazu has a master's degree from the Tokyo University of the Arts and serves as Chairman of Ginmekai School, Councilor of Japan Sankyoku Association and Assistant Director of the Ikuta School. He has received many prestigious awardsmost recently the Minister of Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Award in 2014.
