Today we went to a huge music store in Ginza to buy a guitar. We wanted a small one (obviously), but still big enough to provide a decent tone. The Yamaha GL1 guitalele was really small, but the sound was too wimpy. We settled for an Aria A20, bigger than the guitalele but smaller than a typical acoustic guitar.
Emma immediately adopted it. She insisted on carrying it for the rest of the day and when we came home she hogged it and refused to let anyone else play :o)
A nice incident on the way home: While I was off trying to find an ATM that accepts non-Japanese credit cards (not so easy it turned out), Sia was playing guitar on the street while the girls danced. Good backup plan in case my mission failed – they could probably have earned enough cash for dinner :o)
