Honkyoku 本曲,
traditional Buddhist pieces from different temples in Japan.

This song was transmitted from Ichigetsuji, a temple in the Kanto region of Japan. Ekoh's meaning may be found in Buddhist precepts such as kusho, tamuke, fuse, and kishi. All of these ideas pertain to offering prayers or chanting sutras for the benefit of souls who have passed from this world (shujo ekoh) as well as for one's own personal benefit (bodai ekoh). One should play this piece with an appropriate attitude and purity of intention.
