Funahashi Times No.50 「大正琴に挑戦中」

Hello there!

Look at the picture below. This is called the taishougoto or the Nagoya harp. It is my Japanese teacher’s. She said that nobody uses it in her house, so she lets me borrow it. I have never seen nor played one before. I have tried playing simple songs with it already, but I can’t play it really well yet. I think it’s very interesting and fun to play. Can you play the taishougoto? Please teach me. I will practice hard to be good at it.
