Mountain Cherry Trees in Japan

The beautiful bark has been left on this unsplit Japanese Mountain Cherry branch flute (Prunus serrulata var. spontanea), measuring 13 3/8" in length, tuned to a high D Kumoi scale.  Two of the tone holes have been offset, to allow for finger pad space, since the half-tone intervals are so close together.  Deer leather lacing with Jade and Brass beads secures the bird to its nest.  To help resist wet-out, the bird has been fitted with a redwood shoe for its absorption qualities and a drain hole, covered by the lacing, has been designed into the air chamber.  The branch for this flute came directly from Japan, where Mountain Cherry blossoms are known as YamazakuraAlso of interest, Kabazaiku, is the 200 year old art form in Japan of crafting objects out of cherry tree bark.
