During the Nara period (S. VIII) was introduced as an instrument from China to Japan. At the beginning of Edo Perios, during the sixteenth century, only the "Komuso", a gruop of itinerant Buddhist monks, had the exclusivity to play this flute until losing this permission years later and nowadays it is treated as an other instrument to incorporate in chamber music and intimate environments.
