Japanese Scales (in sen)

This is one of the most common among Japanese scales (there are other scales called simply "Japanese 1" and "Japanese 2"), and therefore often just called the Japanese Scale. It is also referred to as "in sen scale" or only the "in scale". The scales are built like a pentatonic scale with five notes, as well as the Yo scale, which is another scale used in Japanese music.
