Update: Cheapets price found around 80$ Still a lot money for a small book (172pg)

The author:

Henry Johnson is Professor at the University of Otago, New Zealand. His research interests are in the field of ethnomusicology, particularly the performing arts of Asia and its diasporas. His books include The Koto; Performing Japan; and The Shamisen.

Unfortunately, none of the public libraries on this island nation carry this book, otherwise I would have borrowed it for a review Smile

Hi, I was sent this book by the author Henry, since he spent a fair amount of time with me for his research for it in Japan. It is a beautiful book. I recommend contacting your local libraries to see if they can order a copy.
