Until 2013, Kodo printed regular publications in English, but these periodicals have now been replaced by a weekly email information service. Please click here for subscription details. Our monthly Japanese newsletter “Kodo” is sent to Friends of Kodo members and supporters of our group in Japan.

Below is an introduction of our various periodicals to date. They include reports on our performances and tours, experiences gained through various encounters and exchanges, updates and lifestyle episodes from our activity base Kodo Village on Sado Island, and an array of topics that share “Kodo” with our supporters.
