Welcome to Chords Canada. Chords is the only stocking distributor specializing in traditional Japanese musical instruments and accessories outside of Japan. We carry a varied selection of products. Most items are in stock in our warehouse in Toronto, and others are available by special order. If you don't see what you're looking for in our online catalogue, just let us know what you want and we'll be happy to try to source it for you.

We ship globally and are happy to ship to street addresses in most countries. Shipping to post office boxes is not available.

Chords does not offer e-commerce or online shopping at the moment. We prefer the old-fashioned way of doing business, namely two-way communication with our customers. So if you're interested in any of our products, let us know what items you're looking for and we'll be happy to give you pricing, shipping estimates, etc. by phone, fax or email. For your convenience, we accept payment by Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, bank draft, bank wire, money order, cheque (drawn on Canadian or US banks only) and cash (Canadian or US only).

Chords' website is intended to serve both novice and expert musicians. We hope you'll find some interesting items here to add to your own Japanese music collection. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Until then, have a look at Chords Canada's YouTube channel. In our playlists, you'll find hundreds of interesting and instructive videos, conveniently sorted by instrument and topic. You can watch high-quality performances on most of the traditional Japanese instruments, or check out the how-to-play videos we've selected for you to help get you started at playing for yourself. Enjoy!
