Legacy of an Inventive Genius
Over a century ago, a small village held the humble beginnings of Koichi Kawai, the man that would first make a reed instrument, and then to designing and building the first piano action in Japan. His passion for producing the finest piano ignited legacy of purpose in his son, Shigeru Kawai. Shigeru labored in all areas of the piano manufacturing before working directly with his father to hone his devotion to innovation.
