Taiko-no-Tatsujin (Japanese Drum Master)

by Mari

Here, a college boy is playing the drum in a game center.  To start, he chooses a song from a number of choices.  They are set at various speeds to test your ability.  He follows the promptings and beats the drum to the right rhythm in the area of the drum.  When he sees red circles on the display, he is supposed to beat the center of the drum, and for blue circles, the rim(edge) of the drum.  For each beat he gets a point as either good, ok or no good.  At the end of the song, the total score is displayed.

 

Why not challenge Taiko-no-tatsujin while you stay in Japan?  It is a fun game, and you just might become a 'Taiko-no-Tatsujin'  - a drum master!!

Mari guided our clients in Kyoto for two days. She made excellent sightseeing suggestions and was always very helpful. The clients were a small group visiting Japan to attend the wedding. Our clients enjoyed the tour and we would use her services again in the future.

I would highly recommend Mari. She has an excellent command of English and communicated clearly both in the lead up to and during our tour of Kyoto. Mari was very well organised and had bought our bus tickets in advance which saved time. She navigated the public transport system like an expert and planned the itinerary perfectly. She steered us through the crowds of Kyoto and paced the tour acco...

“ Kyoto tour—unexpected expenses ”

The tour was great, except for unexpected transportation expenses, and not warned about cash issues. Waiting for a congested bus to take us to another destination was also dissatisfying.

Mari met us at cruise terminal in Kobe and then we boared our TR Taxi and went to Kyoto. She showed us all the important sights and knowledge of everything and explained in detail. Her English was very good. We had her for 2 days and enjoyed every minute of our tour. I will recommend her to anyone travelling to Kyoto.

“ Kyoto Touring ”

Very Good
1 month ago Traveler: Chad -   Tour Guide: Mari

Mari was great. We were a very difficult group to work with due to dietary restrictions and a packed itinerary. She helped us trim the unnecessary sites off of our list so that we could focus on the truly must-see places. She was very flexible with our schedule (by our last day we were pretty tired and needed to eliminate some sites). She was very knowledgeable and I would highly recommend Mar...

Unfortunately, I got sick on the day of the tour. But I talked to my group and asked about Ms Mari. They told me that Ms Mari is so kind, came on time and spoke softly. She was so fast in walking as per my group! But they managed to follow her. She explained every detail to them. Two thumbs up!

Mari was excellent in both the planning and the tour itself. She was great in corresponding with me on the decisions of how to plan the day.

Mari is such a pleasant person it was a joy to tour with her.

We had an excellent time with Mari. She made our vis...

Miss Mari is a very professional, friendly and thoughtful tour guide. She understands the needs of my mother. Prior to the start of our private tour, Miss Mari managed to help us find a private van for rental even though our private tour booking is very last minute. She also helped us to make lunch reservation for kobe beef, which was a great lunch! We enjoyed our one day private tour to Kob...

Mari brought our family of four to tour around Osaka, covering highlights including the Nijo-jo castle, Dotombori and Dendentown, where we visited a couple of manga stores which my daughters have thoroughly enjoyed. She was patient, helpful and professional.
