It is the flute that played at the beginning of a song when the Waki performer appears. There are three types of Shin, Groy, Kusa depending on the role of Waki and the presence or absence of Wakitsure and it is different with the “Yosei flute” when the Waki appears on the stage and stops. Except for Waki-noh, it is played only when the nanori is chanted immediately after the performer appears, and it is not played when the Waki appears in advance of other roles. It is often seen in the appearance of priests such as in “Izutsu” and “Yashima” plays.
