Shamisen's most popular way of musical notation of sheet music is called Bunkafu.

Bunka Literally means culture,and
Fu means sheet music.

In fact, Bunkafu is a registered trademark of Hogakusha, Co,Ltd,

so we didin't use 'Bunkafu' in the music book I published first .

But the company which published my book asked Hogakusha

how much it would cost to use the trademark 'Bunkafu'.

However Hogakusha said they don't charge anything.

In order to use the name,

one must put an annotation on the last page,

'This way of notation is originated by Kineya Yahichi IV '"

For these reasons, we can use the word 'Bunakfu' in the text with this annotation.

This is a short story of "Bukafu"

So now we can use the word 'Bunakfu' with the note.

津軽三味線で一般的な記譜法に

「文化譜」というものがありますが、

これは実は邦楽社の登録商標なので、

1冊目に出版した本には「タブ譜」と書いてあります。

その後出版社が 邦楽社さんに使用料を聞いてみたところ、

「お金はかかりませんが、
この文化譜の形式は四世杵屋弥七の創案されたものであるという一文を入れて下さい」

とのこと。

という訳で最近出版された本にはきちんと「文化譜」と表記されています。
