I don’t know the product, but you can read about it via some old customer reviews at Buzzilions — the most recent is September 2008. No one has cared enough to comment about the shrimp since then?

I wonder what JFE Shoji Trade America has to do with it? According to Food Facts, the product is “manufactured by” Kawasho International Inc. Perhaps the former are the importers/distributors?
Of course, Geisha refers to the brand, and is not instead some sort of variety of shrimp. One can purchase their products — including the tiny shrimp — directly from them online here.
The above image is from Food Facts mentioned earlier — it is a little different from the label displayed in the first photo of this post. Perhaps a differently sized can? According to Buzzillions where the first image came from, the can in question is four ounces. The quantity associated with the can just above is 4.25 ounces.
Why on Earth have two can sizes that are a mere quarter-of-an-ounce in difference? Is someone really going to say that the 4.25-ounce can is ‘way too much for his or her needs, and thus opt for the four-ounce can?
As a June 15, 2012, edit to this post, here are some other mentions of Geisha Tiny Shrimp. Just note that some of the links may not be valid if you refer to them too long after today’s date, for — at least in the first instance — the reference relates to a very recent Walgreen grocery sale:

I apologize for the following irrelevant video clip, but I didn’t have anything dealing with Geisha Tiny Shrimp. It does feature some shrimp, though. Apart from the hokey action scenes and wanton violence, the narrator has one serious speech impediment that has naught to do with his Japanese accent. He is practically incomprehensible — how did he ever get hired for the voice-over, I wonder? I bet even Japanese cannot understand him.
That reminds me of an anecdote my Thai wife told me about within the first year or so of her coming here to Canada in May 2006. I no longer recall the occasion, but she was with some other Thais at one point, and for some peculiar reason, one of them persisted in trying to continually address them in English. However, wherever it was that she learned her English, the accent was so dreadfully atrocious that none of the Thais could figure out much of what she would say, but were too polite to let her know. I thought that was most amusing — that one Thai might not understand another Thai because of her horrible accent.
Okay, the video clip….
Yes, this is a real movie..lol pretty damn badazz! MmMmm shrimp…. =]
