Although Tsugaru shamisen was established as a genre at the end of the Edo period, its history has mostly been unknown because playing Tsugaru shamisen used to be the livelihood of poor, blind men derogatorily called bosama. Tsugaru shamisen has since been reconsidered as a traditional Japanese entertainment that we are all proud of.
