Japan’s Ryoko Itabashi


Originally from Japan, Ryoko lived in Montreal for three years before following her husband to Ottawa last summer while he pursues an internship.

She can be found in the Market on most days playing Tsugaru-Shamisen with her shinobue (bamboo flute) and other instruments.

    Hello Kenneth, it’s Ryoko who played tsugaru shamisen in byward market last summer. (I met you there and you posted an article about me:) ) I am happy to tell you that now I have my own website. I used a few of your pictures in my gallery page, if you don’t mind. If you put a mouse over your picture, it shows “go to link” and when you click that, it goes to your “Found In Ottawa” 🙂 I really like your pictures. You have a very good sense! By the way, may I have a full (?) picture of me on the very top page of “Found in Ottawa” if you still have, please? I really like that picture too. Thank you very much Kenneth. Best for 2014! See you maybe in the summer 🙂
