Through a woman in or around Murakami that most ALTs know (except me), Hannah was able to get us 4th row seats at a KODO concert!! For those who don’t know, Kodo is the BEST taiko drum group in the universe.
Getting there was an adventure in and of itself. Even though we left right after work, with traffic and the cold rain, it took nearly 2.5 hours to get to Niigata City. Then trying to find parking amidst full lots made us 20 minutes late. Aimee and I made it though, and met up with Taiko and it was AWESOME!!
My favorite performances are always the ones where they dance with their drums and smile J I can’t find the words to describe how mind-blowing the beautiful flutes, voices, beats, bangs, muscles, rhythms, and so on were!!
