Roots Shakuhachi: The Bamboo Way

Roots Shakuhachi: The Bamboo Way Review

Once carried by itetarant Buddhist priests, the shakuhachi, a long bamboo flute, is one of Japan's most hauntingly soothing musical insturments. It is a testament to Japan's traditional aesthetic of elegant simplicity. At Roots Shakuhachi, customers can make their own shakuhachi. Budget ¥3,000 and thirty minutes to an hour to make your shakuhachi, and a little more time to learn the basics of how to play it.
