traditional music partitions

Hello
I was wandering how traditional music was written in order to be transmitted, before the occidental transcriptions were introduced (to tell the truth, I don't know if they are used now for traditional japanese music), or what the equivalent was of the present music score for traditional instruments.
I searched the forum, but did not find anything related...
I searched Google, and found that the music scores were related each to an instrument, examples found only for sakuhachi and biwa.
Could someone be kind enough to tell if there was really no "universal" music writing, and what was done for the transmission of flute or taiko, or nô partitions, multiple instruments music ...?
Thanks in advance

工尺譜
というものがあったようです。
私も知りませんでしたが。

http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%B7%A5%E5%B0%BA%E8%AD%9C
以下、URLからの要点引用。

過去の東洋の音楽では、琴なら琴、三味線なら三味線、というように、楽器ごとに独自に特化した「タブ譜」を使うのを常とした。工尺譜は、楽器や楽曲のジャンルを問わず共用され、習得も容易だったので、民間の通俗音楽で広く用いられた。

inuinu,

どうもありがとうございます!
工尺譜といいますね!

Your link and your summary of Wikipedia were very useful, the second one allowing me to try to understand the first. Thanks again for your trouble.
