Default Connect a digital piano to computer without usb?

I want to buy a Kawai ES110 that doesn't have usb entrance but i want the possibility to play it as a midi controller.
Is that possible with this Midi-Usb Cable?
Below I insert images with the inputs of the digital piano and the cable

(sorry for the english)

This seems to suggest that would work:

"You can also use dedicated MIDI sockets, but since most computers don’t include MIDI ports themselves, you will probably need to use an adapter or USB-MIDI cable."

Well thank you. I think that this cable can do what i need

I was uncertain about the IN OUT (midi-usb) cable.
I mean is that correct? It needs to be (MIDI=IN) and (USB=OUT)?

As I understand it, you don't need to worry about where it says in/out on the cable. It should be able to go which ever way it needs to, since it's a MIDI signal.

Should you want to buy an external soundcard that has midi in, they're generally cheap on the used market. Something small like a NI Komplete Audio 6 might suit you.
