web site
  Our club started in service its proper web site in October 01, 1998.
  "Propagation of reedorgan" is the most important purpose of our club.

  convenience of many organ people who couldn't reach at the entrance
  of reedorgan wonderland.  Now we are constructing a virtual organ
  museum, a small gallery of which opens today.  This English page you
  are reading now is made for the convenience of non Japanese organ
  people who want to exchange reedorgan information and who are
  interested in our club to join in.

  3. publication of a reedorgan atlas of Japan
