While searching for ukulele videos in various languages, I stumbled upon this page. As stated at the top of the page, “This page is a simplified edition of an original Japanese page and has been translated by machine”.

Buying over the internet will not harm you :

[…] “Now I’m not hurt to re-purchase.”

In case you are still not convinced to buy, this detailed description of the product will definitely win you over :)
