My Taiko World Dream

I had the honor and opportunity to play on the biggest Taiko drum outside of Japan in Hawaii. The Taiko drum was made by “Asano Taiko”.

Listed in the Guinness Book of World Records is a drum named “Heian Drum”.
This drum can be found in Uwajima city located in the Ehime prefecture.
I was privileged to perform on this special Taiko drum.

There are still exists many more special giant Taiko drums in the world. I will challenge myself and honored to be invited to play and perform on them all.
