Matsutoyo Kai was established in Northern California by Matsutoyo Sato in 1966 shortly after she arrived from Japan. For ten years, Matsutoyo Kai was based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

In 1976, Matsutoyo Sato moved to the Los Angeles area, extending the reach of Matsutoyo Kai to Southern California, where it is now based.

In 2006, Matsutoyo Kai became a nonprofit organization whose primary objective and purpose is to pass on the traditional music of Japan and to create and leave a Japanese music legacy. Part of that purpose is to provide instruction in singing, shamisen, taiko, and kane and to give public performances in Japanese folk and classical music.
