The library is now open for visitors!

Yay! Hooray! We’re very excited to finally be able to announce the opening of Wadaiko Toshokan 和太鼓図書館, your online library about Japanese taiko drums. As the name suggests, this page aims to become an information portal about everything related to taiko drumming.

Changes and additions will be announced on the main page, where you will also be able to find taiko-related news. New articles and tutorials will first be posted as a blog article, and then added separately to the according page sections. There is not that much content on the page yet, but we do have a work-in-progress world map with a listing of taiko maps all over the globe – go check it out here!

Since this is the first release of this portal, there might be things that seem a bit weird, and even though we’re fairly sure that all parts of the page do work, we’re all ears if you find something that’s broken, or if you would like to suggest an improvement or discuss something. Just write a comment on the corresponding page, or send a mail to! We’re looking forward to hearing from you!

So, please go and explore Wadaiko Toshokan. This is just the beginning!


Admin and creator of the Wadaiko Toshokan project.
