Koto is the national instrument of Japan and are made from kiri wood (Paulownia tomentosa). The strings are strung over 13 movable bridges along the width of the instrument. Players can adjust the pitch by moving bridges before playing, using three finger picks (thumb, index finger and middle finger) to pluck the strings.
