That's great experience. I participated in this program with my wife and daughter and they was happy.
I was looking forward to experiencing taiko and I'd thought it was easy to beat a drum before I did. However, it was so hard and difficult to make a good sound!! I was surprised that taiko masters made a beautiful sound easily.
I didn't expect that I could join the event as exciting as this. My girlfriend was also pleased to experience Japanese culture. In next trip to Japan, I will participate in this program.
I think this is best experience in my trip!!! I can't forget the excitement!
This activity is one of highlights of my trip to Japan. The teachers are so nice. they taught me how to play as well as its history very nicely.\\N The interpreter did all the translations so there was no language problem. If you are interested in Japanese music, it is highly recommended.
Nice teachers and amazing experience.\\NThe professional Taiko drumers performed amazing taiko sessions in the begining.\\N It is like dancing and playing drums at the same time. and then, I got to learn how to play Taiko which was very unique experience.\\N The instructors lectured me very nicely. Now, I am into Taiko. I will definitely come back again next summer!
