Taiko drumming lesson

Taiko drumming lesson

Take a break from Tokyo sightseeing and beat a drum to your heart's content

Requiring nothing more than a willingness to learn, taking a taiko drumming lesson is a fantastic way to try your hand at a traditional Japanese instrument regardless of your musical ability and it's also a great work out too! InsideJapan Tours are able to arrange private or group lessons in Tokyo or Kyoto where you learn the basic rhythms of this traditional instrument and gradually layer them together to create your very own stage worthy performance. By the end of the lesson you'll feel like you've been doing it for years and will be throwing in some unnecessary but highly impressive leg lunges, arm swings and chanting for good measure.
