Learn How to Play the Traditional Taiko Drums

Guests can visit a taiko dojo (practice hall) to enjoy an exciting close encounter with the impressive taiko Japanese drums. Their teacher during this experience will first explain the history and importance of taiko drums, how they are made and their great significance in Japanese music. Guests are then taught some simple but impressive rhythm beats, later joining together to create an exciting performance, including the poses and vigorous yells that accompany the drumming. Their use dates back to over 2000 years ago when they were used as a communication tool and in religious rituals.

An allocated photo time is also included (with your own camera), to collect amazing memories of this unique and highly respected, ancient Japanese tradition.
