A Taiko Drum at Every Festival: The Photo of the Week

Taiko Drums are Japanese instruments that are as much a part of the culture of Japan as sushi, rice and chopsticks. These musical instruments may be heard at just about any Festival throughout Japan, in Concert Halls, at School Grounds, Sporting Events, on TV, CD, DVDs or the Radio. But, there's nothing like seeing and hearing a live Taiko Performance. If you haven't witnessed a live Taiko Performance and felt the earth vibrate under your feet, I'd have to say "YOU HAVEN'T SEEN OR EXPERIENCED JAPAN" !

"Drum" for Asians, it is not only a musical instrument. Is also a "gift."
