Kiseru - Japanese Pipe 8 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 2  
Hi there,

might be an odd question, as I don't expect this to be a very common thing:

I'm a pipe smoker and I'm interested in the smoking culture of Japan. I found out that there is this thing called "Kiseru"-Pipe in Japan, which seems to be very different from what I'm used to smoke my tobacco in. Further, the tobacco for it seems to be different too, it is extremely fine cut.

I'm wondering if smoking a Kiseru - and smoking pipes in general - is common/uncommon thing in Japan. Can this still be considered a part of the current smoking culture, or is it just an historical thing and extremely rare?
Pipe-smokers - generally - are quite rare in my country (Germany), but still can be seen from time to time.

Does anyone know something about the Kiseru and pipe-smoking in Japan in general?

Thank you!
Mr. Bojangles
