Looking for a new sound and quite interested in looking into the roots of tradional japanese music and maybe picking up an instrument, i know its a long shot on this forum, but if anyone knows any good sites, information or anything, that would be great

the shamisen & bamboo flute are the traditional japanese instruments with hints of taiko drums
check out the Yoshida Brothers

they use mostly pentatonic & whole tone scales,the style of playing also changes from mainland and islanders
