Small double-headed, shallow cylindrical-shaped drum made with a wooden shell and two animal skin membranes. The membranes are mounted and stitched on concealed hoops, and are then laced with a cord that goes through six holes each, being tensioned with a further section of cord around the waist central area. This instrument is one the drums used in the accompanying ensemble for Japanese Noh and Kabuki performances, but it is also used in folk music. It is usually held on a stand and played with two wooden beaters.
