Today we listened to traditional Japanese music. One of the instruments was correctly identified by Elijah as a flute called a shakuhachi. Mr. Jump remembered working with a Japanese-American shakuhachi player by the name of Gengi Ito. We looked him up on the Internet and sadly found out he died in 2001. Here is a picture of a shakuchachi:
The shakuhachi flute is usually very large and carved out of bamboo.
