 Exploring Old Tokyo
Koto is one of the ku, or wards, in the downtown district of old Tokyo--Shitamachi--which was home to the bustling merchant and artisan quarters that were the heart of Tokyo from the beginning of the seventeenth century to the late nineteenth century.
Tokyo's Shitamachi is especially lively at New Year's, when throngs of people make a meguri, or pilgrimage, to the shrines and temples of the Shichifukujin (Seven Deities of Good Fortune).
Two of Tokyo's most famous Shichifukujin Meguri are the Fukagawa Shichifukujin Meguri and the Kameido Shichifukujin Meguri in the Fukagawa and Kameido districts of Koto-ku.

 About the Japanese Koto
The shape of the koto is said to resemble that of the dragon (ryu), and the names of various parts of the koto correspond to various parts of the dragon.
It was during the peaceful Edo period (1603-1867) that the koto developed from an exclusive court instrument into a uniquely Japanese instrument with a voice all its own, with its own indelible sound that has become an intricate part of Japanese art and culture.
He is largely regarded as being responsible for keeping the koto vital and alive at a shaky turning point in Japanese culture, when traditional arts were being set aside and forgotten in a time of intense westernization.

Time duration of the moment-rate functions are large compared with similar magnitude events calculated elsewhere, we think that this is because we are inverting a large window of the seismogram that contain energy that it is not seen at regional distances or teleseismic distances.
