The shakuhachi (尺八、しゃくはち, pronounced ) is a Japanese longitudinal, end-blown bamboo-flute. It was originally introduced from China into Japan in the 7th century and underwent a resurgence in the early Edo period (17th century). The oldest shakuhachi in Japan is currently stored in Shōsō-in, Nara. The shakuhachi is traditionally made of bamboo, but versions now exist in ABS and hardwoods.
