If you're looking to experience the art of taiko drumming in Japan, Sado Island Taiko Centre (Tatakokan) is the perfect destination! With guidance from Kodo, an internationally acclaimed taiko group rooted in Sado Island, you can discover the joy of taiko through games and performances. Be sure to make a reservation at least three days in advance through the official website.

The center also boasts an impressive display of taiko drums of all sizes, including one meticulously handcrafted by Kodo members from a zelkova tree estimated to be around 600 years old.
