Rino Aise is a native of Japan and a performer of drama and music. Rino initially studied Minyo (folk songs) with Ryushu Kubota, the highest teacher of the Hokkaido Folk Song Federation.

The Globus Washitsu is an authentic Japanese space in central Manhattan, comprised of traditional shoji screens, tatami mats, and fusuma. It is an ideal setting for listening to Japanese music. Created by the Globus family with the assistance of Japanese carpenters, it has a full tea house where traditional Japanese tea ceremonies and lessons are conducted. The Globus Family sponsors many facets of Japanese culture including music, art, film, kimono, craft, dance, etc. They also offer residence for visiting artists in their Ryokan (Japanese style living space). They collaborate with other cultural institutions, such as the World Music Institute to broaden the dialogue between people from Japan and USA.
