About this sight

Focusing on the traditional Japanese percussion instrument, the Taiko drum, this museum invites visitors to learn about and experience Japanese music and history. Founded in 1861 by Miyamoto Unosuke Shoten Co.,Ltd., a traditional instruments manufacturer, the Taikokan Drum Museum displays a variety of different types of Taiko drums. They also feature other traditional items such as wind instruments like the Japanese flute and the Dadaiko, as well as the Mikoshi (portable shrine used in Shinto celebrations).
