Their products include ""Takumi no jonetsu sanshin"" made by professionals who are enthusiastic about their craft and handle every stage of production, starting with the selection of the wood. ""WOOD Sanshin"", which features affordable prices and a design that incorporates Okinawa Bingata and Mincer textiles, is also popular. The store also sponsors lessons in making and playing sanshin."

Okinawa Areas

around-area-map

Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You've arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan's most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
