About

Hi! My name is Andrew. I live in the United States. I am deeply fascinated by traditional Japanese culture. It all started back in 2005 with a little movie called “Memoirs of a Geisha”. Currently I am self-studying traditional Japanese dance forms and traditional Japanese music.

My “blog” is mainly about the dances and the music that accompanies said dances. If you have any questions feel free to comment or message me.

Thanks for visiting!
