Initially only for the court until the ninth century, the shakuhachi is a Japanese bamboo flute with five holes, brought by China following diplomatic exchanges. The expansion of the shakuhachi was done thanks to the komusô (itinerant warrior monks) and this flute become not only a musical instrument but a religious one.
