It has been 10 years since the earthquake. With the thought of requiescats.

In Miyako City, a coast of Sanriku, where there are many taiko fans, we will invite taiko performance groups from all over the Tohoku region and the Sanriku region to hold a competition.

Rifu Taiko

1990. A small sound that could be drowned out by the noise of the surroundings, that was the heartbeat that announced the birth of Rifu Taiko.
A major turning point for Rifu Taiko was the encounter with Tokatsuya Ichiro, a leading Japanese drum player.
Since I started receiving guidance from 1996, my progress has been amazing.
While always pursuing the real thing and incorporating new shapes, he is challenging and tackling the most difficult instrument, the easiest and most difficult instrument, without losing the color of Rifu taiko.

Yamakiya Taiko

Yamakiya Taiko was established in 2001 and created songs with the theme of "Beautiful nature and here is my hometown", and continues to practice and perform based in Kawamata Town, Fukushima Prefecture. Currently, there are 22 people from children to working people, and through Wadaiko, they carry out activities that value cross-generational exchanges and connections with the local community.
The Yamakiya district became an evacuation area after the Great East Japan Earthquake. (Cancelled at the end of March 2015)
I am grateful that I have been able to continue my activities thanks to the many connections I have made through the earthquake and the feelings of support, and I am resonating with the heartbeat of my hometown.
