Japanese) became a world famous composer and koto
After a childhood in Korea, where he lost his eyesight, Miyagi returned to Japan and began studying the koto (Japanese harp).
In 1927 Miyagi composed his most famous composition, Haru no Umi (Spring Sea), which is descriptive of the Tomonoura coast on the Inland Sea. This serenely haunting duet for koto and shakuhachi is loved throughout the world.
Michio Miyagi died in 1956 after mysteriously falling from a train.
