It's loud. It's powerful. It's SUPER fun!    Enjoy the authentic art of Japanese Taiko Drumming, no experience or Japanese required! TAIKO-LAB is one of the largest Japanese Taiko drumming groups in the world, with members  who tour internationally and teach over 3,000 students in our studios across Japan.  We believe playing Taiko is good for both your body and the mind, so we would like people of  all ages from around the world to experience the beat of the drums!

We took an hour lesson with our 3 girls, ages 8, 11 & 13 and had the best time! We learned a lot about the history of drumming and its use in cultural Japan. Thanks for a great time and lots of laughs!

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
