Where you'll be

9:40 Meet at Gelateria La Festa Registration and introduction. 10:00 Enjoy watching a professional taiko drumming performance in the elegant atmosphere of the Japanese tradtional storehouse compound, Sairi Yashiki. We will demonstrate a full-energy performance to express our feelings of welcome. Feel free to take pictures and video, and post on social media. Show off to your family and friends about this unique workshop that you can only experience here. 10:20 After the taiko drumming performance, you will practice some taiko mindfulness exercises and learn how to play the drums yourself. The taiko teacher will show you how to beat the drum and teach you a simple song. You will become a taiko performer too! Taiko mindfulness is the act of losing yourself in your concentration on drumming, freeing your mind from stray thoughts. After the mindfulness exercise, you will learn a fun, simple, and rhythmical song. 11:20 Next, you will get to wear happi, a traditional festival coat, and perform the song you learned on the stage! We will record you with your smartphone so that you have a video to keep~
