About us

Originally our committee was established in 2016, at first as a composition workshop. The mission of Spring in Ise-Shima is to foster mutual understanding between artists and non-artists in the Japanese beautiful Ise-Shima region.

Due to the epidemic situation, currently we are organizing all events online, accepting applications from all over the world. Our first free online music competition for young musicians was successful with more than 600 entries.

Our competition certificates will be printed on “IseWashi” paper made by Taihou Wasi Kougyou K.K.. IseWashi has been made in Ise since the early Meiji period for distribution of Ise Jingu's paper amulets to all over Japan. 

 Ise Jingu is the most important Shinto shrine which has been worshipped as the Home of Heart. Taihou Wasi Kougyou K.K. was founded in 1899 (Meiji 32).  Since then, the company has been making pure and noble washi (Japanese paper) for Ise Jingu.
