Snot bubble is called 鼻ちょうちん hana-chouchn,  literally means Nose lantern

I saw it for real for the first time




I bought this shamisen on Internet Auction.
It was 7000 yen in all.

This is very rare because Sao, oe neck is Chuzao, middle thickness neck but Doh, or body is Gobudai, Tsugaru size.







Dan, can I get your advice?
I need to hold auditios for the performers for the theaters next play.
Since I'm new here,I was wondering how you've avertised audtions in the past.Well we always post audtions notices on the theater's website.We have quite a few regular performance who check the site all the time. That's a start.But This play has a large cast.

I think we need to do more if we're going to attract enough actors.

I know there are other websites where you can post audtion notices
and some of them are free.Let me e-mail you some of ones I'm familiar with
