The Japanese Shakuhachi Flute
The Shakuhachi is an ancient Japanese end-blown bamboo flute. It was often played by Buddhist monks, during a form of meditation.
The most common Shakuhachi flutes are made of Bamboo, and are tuned in D with a length of 1.8 Shaku. Wooden Shakuhachi flutes are often more predictable as they are not affected by temperature and humidity.
In modern pop culture, The Shakuhachi has made appearances in samurai inspired games, such as Sekiro and Ghost of Tsushima. The Shakuhachi is played by Jin Sakai in the latter.
