Hi Bichido-peop!

In case you are not aware, you can watch Tokyo Hibiya Taikai ( one of the Tsugaru shamisen national competitions) on Ustream tomorrow on 5th Apr.

Starts at 10am Japan time.

Hope you all enjoy!



Thanks for the heads up! I’ll definitely watch some of it.


Do you happen to know if there’s a schedule anywhere? I looked on the tournament website but couldn’t find anything there.


Hi Jamie-san,

No, I only know what you know…sorry.

It’s supposed to go on for around 5 hours, so the best part of taikai will be nearly the end? I’m just guessing…


Cool! I’ll tune in in the morning.
