Taiko-no-Tatsujin (Japanese Drum Master)

by Mari - Japan Licensed Guide
(51) 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!!

“ Great Day in Osaka with Mari ”

Excellent
1 week ago Traveler: John -   Tour Guide: Mari

We spent a great day in Osaka with Mari who was very punctual, friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. Mari gave us a good introduction to the city and as we are here for a few days, have gone back and spent more time in some of the places, such as Namba. We thoroughly enjoyed our Kushikatsu lunch as suggested by Mari. Would definitely recommend Mari.

My friend and I travel a lot and often have troubles with guides slowing us down but that was never the case with Mari, who always kept up with us. She also was extremely knowledgeable and we learned a lot from her over the time...

Mari was very accommodating with our tour and took us to the Temple,Market, and Gion. She answered all the questions we had and gave us some historic information.

We enjoyed the most wonderful day with Mari. She greeted us exactly on time at our Ryokan in Kyoto.

We were traveling with our two teenaged children and our 8 year old. She was very patient as it was a very...
