We have started launching our section about drum types! Our first featured article is a detailed description of the shimedaiko, the high-pitched center piece of many taiko ensembles. The description includes detailed annotated graphs with the English and Japanese terms in Kanji and Western transcription.
We have finished compiling the first version of our taiko-related shop list. Included are onlineshops and retail shops from Germany, the UK, the US and Japan.
We now have a Twitter Account: Follow us at @WadaikoToshokan! New articles and changes to the site will also be announced on that account.
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.
