Japanese plucked string instrument
   The Koto
Rokudan and Sakura mpeg recordings. The Koto is an ancient Japanese instrument that is still played today, although it's not nearly as popular as in the past. The sound is very interesting, not rhythmic in the way you may expect, but it's definitely got a twang! Most Japanese don't listen to it much,because it is so traditional.
