Taiko drummers

Taiko drummers

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the Stardog Champion is back! I know you missed me, but I have returned to bring you all a taste of life in Japan.

And the theme here is summer. Summers in Japan mean three things: hot and muggy weather, copious amounts of beer and sno-cones to beat the heat, and festivals to revel in the heat with lots of beer and sno-cones.

Every festival includes at least one taiko drum performance. They're always so powerful--you can hear the drums long before you can see them. The energy from the thundering rhythms pulsates as it hypnotizes the crowd with a throbbing boom.

Welcome back, since it's your 1st day back, I will give you a pass on this shot :)

Good to see you back, I had just about given up on your return.

Would LOVE to see one of these shows...drummers are the coolest, even in this heat!
