It is a general term for four rhythms as flutes, small drums , large drums, and drums . Sometimes it means not only musical instruments but also Noh performers. Large and small items are played with flutes, small drums, and large drums , but they are not called “san-byoushi (three rhythms) “. In addition, there is a “five-person hayashi musical accompaniment” in the doll displayed at Girl’s Festival, but it also indicated the chanting and shi-byoushi (four rhythms).
