and dulcimoo is my handle. I started on the net in 1987 ... when I liked dulcimers and cows ... therefore dulcimoo. I have been playing koto for a few years ... and searching for information on Kimono (as I need to get one for the group I play in) is what got me here. I am a man. And old. ... and must be krazy to be trying to learn koto at my age ... but whatever. If you live in SoCal and play japanese music I would be interested in meeting or at least exchanging email.

Hello Tsuruko,

Sorry for the long introduction. はじめまして!My name is Mari. I came upon your site when searching for a particular subject.
I travel to Japan yearly to perform music then attend many concerts while there. At one of the concerts, I befriended a girl with a handicap. We've been great friends since then and her father has been very grateful. Her family played shamisen/samisen for generations. Her father was supposed to pass the shamisen onto his daughter, but because of her handicap she cannot play. Her Father handed the shamisen to me as a gift and asked if I could make the shamisen "sing again".
It is great honor to receive such a precious gift, but I don't know how to play. In searching for shamisen lessons in Maryland, I saw you know someone who re-skins Shamisen. Would you know someone willing to teach me this wonderful traditional instrument from the land I love?

ありがとうございました、
Mari   :)

Hello, all!
I've been stalking this forum for quite a while and came to the conclusion that if I want to be informed and research, it's better to be a member of a Geisha-Fan-Community :D
Currently I'm building my own little Geiko and Maiko-Database and while (nearly) everything I need to know about Gion Kobu can be found on Flickr and Tumblr and etc., the rest can be found in such forums. Thank you, forum, for existing! And thank you everyone for the resources! :D

Hello! I figured it be best to do this since I just joined ^.^ I started looking at Maiko/Geiko about two years ago as part of a school project. Since then I've absolutly fallen in love with the dancing style and the shamisen. I'm a bit shy so, if I seem a bit distant it's because of that reason.

Hi, I'm Shona. :) I came to this site because I just opened a fledgling Kimono Rental and Fashion Business online and would like advice, information and encouragement!

I am a sewing machinist by trade and live in Melbourne, Australia. Please have a look at http://theryugiya.ecrater.com.au/ if you'd like to see most of my kimono collection! XD

I guess it's time to introduce myself... My name is Nina and I'm a HUGE fan of Japan. Well, I'm not a really typical one, because I'm not really into manga and anime. I'm more interested at the traditional side of Japan like Kabuki, Bunraku, Noh and, ever since I was old enough to realize how lucky I am to have a grandfather who went to Japan (and who was the first one to introduce me to Japanese culture and customs), Geisha. So that's why I registered. I hope to learn new things about this mysterious world here and I hope the knowledge I have about Japan, its tradition and customs will help others on the forum as well. xD So, that would be it for now. I hope we will all become good friends and have good time here.
P.S. Thanks to everyone who had the patients to read this long (maybe even boring) introduction :P

I've been lurking on this forum for a while now and finally decided to join. So...hello. I'm not sure how much sense my username makes, but I wanted to do something with "ume" in it because I'm a fan of Umechika-san and the Umeno okiya in Kamishichiken. She was the first maiko I learned about and sparked my interest in the profession and lifestyle.

Hi all, I'm a 34 year old mom living in Canada who fell into the floating world by accident. I had bought Mineko Iwasaki's book on a whim and fell in love with geisha and maiko. And so here I am. My user name is my cat's name by the way.
