Beautiful Instrument - Nyckelharpa

Nychekharpa is a traditional Swedish musical instrument.
It is a string instrument or chordophone. Its keys are attached to tangents which, when a key is depressed, serve as frets to change the pitch of the string.

hari-kuyo 針供養 - a requiem service for broken needles.
(hari meaning needle, and kuyo meaning a Buddhist memorial service)

This custom started in edo period (1603-1867) and japanese women put broken needles on tofu or devil's tongue to rest and wished for their improvement of needle works and safety. No sewing takes place on this special day. After the service, the slab of tofu and the needles held safely in it are taken to a sacred final resting place.
