Japanese Scales

This is one of the most common among Japanese scales (there are also two other scales called simply "Japanese 1" and "Japanese 2"), and therefore often called just the Japanese Scale. But it is also referred to as "In Sen scale". The scales are built like a pentatonic scale with five notes.
