    The Fifth Movement, "Mei An": Borrowed from the name of the temple in Kyoto, Myoh-An Ji Temple, which was the cradle for Shakuhachi music, this movement is a change of contrasting bright (Mei) and dark (An) sounds of the instrument. Similar to the recurring method, all the major motives of foregoing movements recur in this finale. The largest, Rondo-like final movement.
