[History of Japanese musical instruments] Shakuhachi: Folk musical instruments

The shakuhachi is a traditional Japanese musical instrument. The origin of "shakuhachi" goes back to the Nara period. The oldest surviving shakuhachi is that of the six-hole three-section house in the Shosoin Temple of Todaiji Temple. The shakuhachi, which is also popular with foreigners, is an air lead instrument that produces sound with the vortex of the airflow created by hitting the air from the mouth against the airflow port of the instrument, and is in the same category as the flute and quena.
