Three Sisters with Maiden Hearts (乙女ごころ三人姉妹, Otome-gokoro sannin shimai) is a 1935 Japanese drama film directed by Mikio Naruse. It is based on the short story Sisters of Asakusa (浅草の姉妹, Asakusa no shimai) by Yasunari Kawabata and was the director's first sound film.


Three sisters earn money for their bossy mother by being shamisen street musicians. This means mainly playing a banjo type instrument for tips in bars. A number of loosely linked episodes ensue as the sisters who have different characters, variously become involved in the world of criminals, sacrifice themselves and find love.
