I love Taiko, or Japanese drumming it is something I`d like to learn to do one day when I have more time. On my first night here in Kanazawa I went up to Wajima on the Noto Peninsular to catch a special kind of masked Taiko called Gojinjo Taiko. A free performance is held every evening in the Wajima Cultural Centre at 8:30pm. And better yet, it`s FREE!!!
What better way to start this trip than this wonderful, scary, loud slice of in your face culture. Truely something you experience more than watch or listen too: the noise shocks and shakes you like an air strike yet at the end of it all you come out smiling.
Anyway enjoy the photo that I have, at last, been able to add.
