The shamisen is a three-stringed, Japanese traditional musical instrument played with a big pick called a bachi.

There are many ways to use Shamisen. Traditional way is for Kabuki which is an old-style Japanese theater arts. Also, it could be played for solo performance or for singing and dancing.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my
    4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
