Noda-go Shimadzu Taiko Performance
Enjoy a powerful performance of taiko drumming from Noda-go Shimadzu Taiko.
The group hail from Izumi in northern Kagoshima Prefecture, where the Shimadzu family first settled when they moved to the area over 800 years ago.
The graves of the first five generations of the Shimadzu family can be found in the grounds of the Kanno-ji temple in Izumi, and due to the deep historical connection to the Shimadzu family this group have become the official taiko group here at Sengan-en.
Make sure to join us and feel the echo of the drums around the garden against the impressive backdrop of active volcano Sakurajima.
Before arriving at the stage in the lower garden the drummers will be playing while marching through the gardens. Make sure to arrive early so you can get a photo with them!
