The koto, or Japanese harp, is nearly six feet long, wirh silk strings (usually thirteen); it rests horizontally on two supports at knee-level. The player sits at one end, stopping the strings wit'h his outstretched left hand and plucking them with long artificial finger-nails fixed on his right hand. The shakuhachi, a kind of bamboo recorder, is about two feet long with a two-inch cylindrical bore.
