This company has been touring the world since 1961, visiting Mexico, England, Greece, Canada, Malaysia, Russia, Indonesia, Africa and the United States. They have been invited to the Philadelphia Cherry Blossom Festival every year since 2003. Their amazing performance of high-energy Taiko drumming and Japanese folkloric dance has received rave reviews from the New York Times and other media. They won Third Prize in competition against 450 other groups at the Tokyo International Taiko contest last year. With growing numbers of fans every year, they return to the U.S. to perform at the Cherry Blossom Festivals in Philadelphia and Washington D.C. as well as this New York performance.
