The Shakuhachi is a Japanese bamboo flute. It was originally introduced from China into Japan in the 6th century and underwent a resurgence in the early Edo Period. The Shakuhachi is traditionally made of bamboo. It was used by the monks of Zen Buddhism in the practice of suizen and as a martial arts weapon. The oldest Shakuhachi in Japan is currently stored in Sho-so--in, Nara.
