At the Central Market in Naha, Okinawa

Music is part of what makes Okinawa Okinawa. The signature musical instrument is the sanshin. What sounds and rhythms can be produced from only three strings!

PS: Yes, one of these sanshin is made from an empty cookie tin and another is made from a piece of tupperware.

    Wow, this photo looks like a place I would be in heaven in--my whole family. And I have to say that the butterfly on the sanshin really captures you to a T.
