Mountain Cherry Trees in Japan

Some of the wonderful bark has been left on this unsplit Japanese Mountain Cherry branch flute
(
Prunus serrulata var. spontanea), contrasting nicely with the exposed wood grain at the tone holes. 
Measuring 18 1/4" in length and concert tuned to an A minor pentatonic, modes 1 & 4, it plays
the Gypsy scale as well as 3 upper octave notes.
  The whole flute is finely finished with all knots
in the wood (four) inlaid with crushed jade, those in the bark (five) with a jade cabochon, making this
a very unique and beautiful flute to hold and play.  Elk lacing with jade and  horn bone beads holds
the bird to the nest.  The branch for this flute came directly from Japan, where Mountain Cherry
blossoms are known as Yamazakura
Also of interest, Kabazaiku, is the 200 year old art form
in Japan of making woodworks out of cherry tree bark.
