Taiko Drum Experience at Historic Temple in Tokyo

合計時間 : 2 hours

What To Expect

Despite being only half an hour away from bustling Shinjuku, this temple is surrounded by an abundance of beautiful greenery. The temple was built in the early 8th century to enshrine Jinja-Daioh, a god of water who is said to have helped bring together the founder's parents. Thanks to its romantic heritage, today the temple is known as a “matchmaking temple” where people's love-related wishes are granted.

Whether it’s a samurai movie or kabuki theater, taiko drum sounds are an integral part of Japanese tradition and culture. Join this 2-hour taiko playing experience at a temple surrounded by nature and try out a wide variety of taiko drums to enjoy the unique sound each of them produces. Don a traditional taiko performance outfit called Samueru, put your soul into the drumsticks, and beat out the rhythm that embodies japan. This is a perfect activity for someone who wants to let off stress while enjoying a culturally and musically inspiring experience.

I have for years been involved in the taiko community, playing various types of taiko and teaching at a number of taiko clubs. One of my clubs held a concert at the temple, which made this arrangement possible.
