plates: 2, bamboo; L. 17.0cm

Two plates of bamboo are tied together with the convex sides facing each other. The player holds one plate and, when the wrist is rotated, the loose plate strikes against the lower part of the other plate. Or, the player vigorously rotates his wrist to cause the one plate to hit against the top and then the bottom of the other in succession. The actor himself uses these in narratives such as kuaiban.
