Shakuhachi maker hanko database
This is a growing database of the hankō (burned-in stamps) that you find on some shakuhachi. These stamps identify the maker of the flute and as a rule, two or three stamps on one flute indicate an instrument of high quality. If you have a flute with the maker’s hankō branded in, you may well be able to find the hankō on this site, along with some information about the maker and their lineage.
