Experience Japan’s Epic Taiko Drumming

If you’ve ever seen a Japanese period piece or samurai film, or have listened to a big-budget movie soundtrack in the last 15 years, chances are you’ve heard the epic rumblings of one of Japan’s most recognisable traditional instruments, the Taiko drum.

Resoundingly bassy and percussive, and played with an intense passion that is integral to the performance, every Taiko composition makes for an unmissable event. If you’re in Niseko this season, make sure you make your way down to the Hirafu Intersection to experience incredible live music performed by the talented KORYU group!

This year’s first performance starts on Sunday (January 6th) from 15:00, but there will be many opportunities to enjoy this traditional staple, with events taking place every Sunday afternoon until March 10th, 2019.
