Maru Sankaku Shikaku (name in Japanese characters is a circle, a triangle, and a square) were a Japanese rock band credited for being one of Japan's earliest psychedelic groups.
The group formed by Sakuro "Kant" Watanabe took their name from the Japanese words for a circle, a triangle, and a square. The group existed from 1970 to 1973 and was led by Sakuro "Kant" Watanabe, who had recently graduated from the Ochanomizu Design Institute, and who also played drums in the band Murahachibu. Other members included Kohji "Tohchan" Miura, Etsuko "Manager" Watanabe, Reck, Chiko Hige, Juno, and Yoshiyuki Hida.
In 1973, the band began recording in the Gyoen Studio. Eventually they released several LPs, but broke up later that very same year. Several years later members, Chiko Hige and Reck, formed the punk rock band, Friction. The band's albums were later re-issued in 2001 on Captain Trip records.
