Prior to the workshop I was concerned about my fitness and skill level but those fears quickly went. It was a fun interesting workshop. Pity I don't live in Osaka or I'd sign up for a course.

I enjoyed learning about Taiko Drums and Japanese culture. Our guide was friendly. We could wear traditional robes and we learned some rhythms and sticking patterns. The time went to fast. It was fun for my friend and I.
