This is a piece of genre Koten in the style of Takuhatsu from the Kinko Ryû - 琴古流 School.
History (John Singer):
|This piece was named after the place called Yoshino in Nara. The term "Reibo" means, "one temple having one piece" (Ichi Ji Ichi Ritsu) and is also used as a suffix. It was transmitted from Ryuan to Zansui at Kyu Koan in Uji along with "Shizu No Kyoku" and "Kyo Reibo". |
In other Shakuhachi schools different Chinese characters are used for "Yoshino" and though the titles are read the same way, the content of the respective pieces differs markedly.
