I'm so excited! I don't know why I only recently joined this community. I have been in love with everything geisha for quite some time now. I think it's such a beautiful part of japanese culture. I just finished, "geisha, a life" by Mineko Iwasaki last night. And of course I've read 'memoirs' and that was also excellent. I'm just so enthralled with the "world of the willow" as they say. I'm very happy to be a part of this community. I plan on studying in Japan in the future. It might be a year or two before it actually becoming a serious plan, but it will happen. I also love japanese culture in general. It'd be so nice to have more friends with this same interest. So please feel free to add me. I'd love to get to know all of you!

So, I have a question, where can I get a shamisen? I looked on ebay to see if I could get one but no luck. I really want to learn to play. I didn't have very much luck on google either. Are shamisen expensive? Are there any good sites I can purchase one at a decent price? Along with a book on how to teach yourself the shamisen? Of course, I'm in San Diego so I'm sure if I tried hard enough, I'm sure I can find someone who gives lessons. i haven't tried looking to see if they sell shamisen here in San Diego but I'm limited on transportation so it'd be a lot of effort. and I don't know the place all that well yet. But since I'm lazy I'll start here. Internet has everything anyway. lol. ok well have a great day.
