What You Can Expect
This was a lot of fun. Good exercise though so be prepared to get hot! We learned one taiko drumming song during the lesson after a brief warmup. Having no drumming experience is fine as long as you can keep a beat. Definitely worth doing. I recommend telling taxi drivers the cross roads though since he didn't know where the taiko drumming center was and had to ask another Japanese person!
The only issue with we had is that we struggled to find the location. Everything is written in Japanese and we don't speak or read the language. Fortunately, we had called in that we would be a few minutes late because we couldn't find the building. The Taiko employees came running down the street to find us. This is quite an intimidating situation for foreigners to be in.
That said, the class was lots of fun!
