Matsuri Taiko Revival Project is reuse and donation program.

 

 

Festivals are the source of people's energy but were disappeared with many victims by earthquake and tsunami in Tohoku area, Japan.

 

5 years passed since Tohoku earthquake and tsunami was occured on March 11th in 2011. Tohoku people looks like back to usual life as before earthquake but it's not true. About 80,000 people have to spend unconvenient life in temporary housing. About 2,500 people are still missing. They lost taiko, which is essential for matsuri (festival). In this project, you can work as a bridge between people needs taiko and old taiko which are used anymore. Taiko Center lists those old taiko and sell our customers at the amount of the repair fee. In addition, we send a part of our sales to Tohoku for donation.

 

We will repair old taiko and revive it like brand new taiko.
