Taiko-no-Tatsujin (Japanese Drum Master)

by Mari - Japan Licensed Guide
(45) Reviews

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!!

We enjoyed the most wonderful day with Mari. She greeted us exactly on time at our Ryokan in Kyoto. She had come up with a great plan for us as everything was in walking distance from where we were staying. She took time to explain historical facts with us and answered any questions we had. We were traveling with our two teenaged children and our 8 year old. She was very patient as it was a very...

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.
