Taiko Drumming


This week has been incredible!

This little old town of Onishi is really starting to feel like home!  Everyone has been extremely welcoming! To go along with that, I was invited to be a part of the town festival!

A big portion of the town festival consists of Taiko drumming.  Practice takes place every night, and I just started my first few lessons this week!  I’m as much of a beginner as they come but it was still a blast! Some of the locals have been playing since they were young children. They were putting me to shame! For the first few practices I have been starting off practicing on tires! I am hoping in the near future I will be good enough to graduate to the real drums, but for now I will try my best to progress on the tire!  I look forward to the rest of the festivities to come leading up to the festival and I will be sure to keep you guys posted! Until then, I will do my absolute best to improve on these drums…

Much Love,
