    Thanks. The link didn't appear but I looked it up on wikipedia anyway.

    I've seen those koto before. I even saw someone play using it on stage. Its just amazing coz I wouldn't be able to do that.

    Can't wait, it truly is a beautiful instrument. I think Sakura Sakura will be the first thing I'll try to play

    Awesome. It'll be even more wonderful once you're able play that Sakura Sakura song.

    How much did it cost you though?

    Hey, It's Satoru, I'm Half Japanese! I now live in England >__> Is there anyone else who is half (Japanese)?

    PS My Kanji is not very good so help!

    I think that's the translation isn't it?

    And on another note, I have learnt so much in my first term studying Japanese (along with Korean) at SOAS, I have already learnt 125 new kanji (we learn 25 a week) and the various forms of "Keigo" (although exactly WHEN to use them can still prove difficult) as well as more sophisticated grammar and vocabulary, and I think I have realised that when you come to a point where you are learning words regularly which have the same or similar basic meaning as words you have already learnt (or grammar) then you are truly at a more advance stage in the language.

    Well, if you improve and know your "Chinese language(s)" well enough, you'd possibly understand Japanese quite a bit.

    Japanese is phoenetic (spelling?) so its easy to speak. knowing chinese will kick start you in reading and writing ALOT. Go for it
