Haru is a Shakuhachi musician and theatre artist in Hong Kong.

In 2007, Haru studied Shakuhachi under the tutelage of Ocean Chan, practising a portfolio of classical and contemporary music including Chikuho-ryu, Watazumi-Yokoyama honkyohn and many others. He later enhanced his skills in Kinko-ryu, Tozan-ryu and Myoan-ryu in Kyoto. He also apprenticed with Shakuhachi master Yodo Kurahashi.

Since 2012, Haru has performed widely, including solo Shakuhachi performances and live accompaniments, as well as collaboratively in recordings of television, film and advertisement soundtracks.

Since 2013, Haru has spread his wings outside Hong Kong, participating in Shakuhachi improvised performances and music sharing, in addition to producing incidental music scores for stage performers in Beijing, Shanghai, Nanchang, Xiamen, Fuzhou, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Kunming, Dali, Taiwan and Japan. Moreover in 2016, Haru debuted his original Shakuhachi compositions in Jiuhuashan, Anhui.

Haru won the Senior Chinese Woodwinds Division Award at 4th Hong Kong International Music Festival in 2017.

Currently, Haru is actively exploring the opportunity to revive the old and create new Shakuhachi music in regions with Chinese culture.
