Stitch Toys R Us Japan Sanshin
Originally uploaded by tikistitch


So, I now have a Stitch guitar, several Stitch ukuleles, and now, this
Stitch Sanshin!

Sanshin (at least if the latest version of Wikipedia can be believed) literally means three strings in Japanese. It's a traditional instrument used in Okinawa, which is where Stitch! the anime is set. The theme song for the show and some of the incidental music uses the sanshin. Seems that the body is usually covered in snakeskin (there are several snake species on Okinawa).

Anyways, this was an exclusive from the Japanese Toys R Us stores this Xmas.
