What did traditional Japanese sheet music look like?

Like from the BC years and all that. Or a little later. But you know what I mean. Like how did they organize the notes on paper?

The "Tempyō Biwa Fu" is said to be the oldest surviving example of Chinese lute music in Japan(738A.D.):http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%95%E3%82%A1%E3%82%A4%E3%83%AB:Tempyo_Biwa_Fu.jpg

My mom was playing koto and those sheets were totally different from "music sheets" that we know (for Western-originated instruments) now.
koto's sheet: http://www.mayukoto.com/images/score2.jpg
First of all, you need to read vertically. 一~十三 describes string names by number (thre're 13) like G, D, A, E for violin. Bars are separated by double lines. This sheet shows it's a 4 count tune. ◎means one count rest.
if you see e.g. "五十", it means you're supposed to play 5th and 10th string at the same time. --edited:

I've heard the sheet varies depending on the instrument.
