Yukio NAKAMURA moves back to Japan after a performing career as an oboist in Germany. In the same year he established "Musik Josef" in Tokyo, a musical instrument reed and accessories shop, and undertook the study and the manufacture of the oboe.
He opened an oboe making workshop in Higashimatsuyama city, a suburb of Tokyo. However, despite his experience as a performer and although his plans were carefully though-out, he lacked the technical know-how of oboe manufacturing. He therefore invited an oboe Meister, Mr Helmut HAGER from Leipzig (Germany), who, over three months, taught him and his co-workers the basis of oboe manufacturing. Five months later, after Meister HAGER went back to Germany, they completed their first oboe.
