This is a fun class in taiko drumming and traditional dancing. The taiko drum is an old Japanese instrument whose origins are pre-history. You may have seen the Kyodo Drummers doing their show in various parts of the world. That is the taiko drum (don't worry, you don't have to wear the diaper). In a small group, you get to dance around and beat on drums. What could be better?
This is truly a hands-on (and teeth-on) experience. Under the guidance of a Japanese cook, you learn to prepare a traditional Japanese meal of such favorites as sushi, sukiyaki, tempura, and yakitori. Then you eat it. If you like to cook at all, it's a lot of fun. Who knows, now that I'm a laid-off tech worker, no longer suitable for employment in the high-tech sector, maybe I can get a job at Benihana's of Tokyo! Only in my case it would have to be Benihana's of Imabari.
