Kanto Yamato Taiko (関東やまと太鼓)

japanese boy taiko drummer face

My first visit to Katsushika-Ku (葛飾区) was not to 亀有公園前派出所, home of my favorite manga, but to the 葛飾菖蒲まつり on the Arakawa side of the district. In June the locals celebrate the blooming irises in Horikiri Shobuen (堀切菖蒲園) as they have been for hundreds of years, but more on the flowers in tomorrow’s entry.

Today’s photo and video are from the taiko performance that we witnessed.
