Mitama Matsuri Taiko Drummers

Posted in Japanese Traditions, People, Places by tokyobling on October 5, 2012

Nothing spells summer like a troupe of Japanese taiko drummers, especially not when it’s in front of the gorgeous lanterns at the Mitamata festival being held in Tokyo’s Yasukuni Shrine. These four guys and two girls had a captive audience.

    Ah, big drums. Nothing like standing near men with muscular arms beating big drums. Had some of that last weekend at the Michigan Renaissance Festival, watching Tartanic–bagpipe rock (!)–two pipers and a couple of big drums–in kilts.

      Haha… that must have been spectacular! You should try and head over to Scotland some day to see the Highland games! (^-^)
