  • Which of the sizes correspond to "atarigane" and "surigane"?

    "Atarigane" and "Surigane" refers to the same instrument. Gong is played by scratching with a beater. To scratch is called "suru" in Japanese. To spend all the money and lose in a lottery is also called "suru". They are completely different words but have same pronounciation. To avoid to associate negative meaning, words "suru" and "suri" are often replaced with the words "ataru" and "atari", which mean to win in a lottery. In a same way, a dried squid is called surume or atarime.
