It is some sort of guitar, I think they called it the "Shamisen".

Is the first string instrument, I think the song goes increasing in some sort of:

-Synthesizer
-String Instrument (Shamisen)
-Acoustic Guitar
-Drums or bass.

Yeah it's a yangqin, a type of hammer dulcimer. It's in this video, at around 3.18-ish
