The Tsuribashi Festival - Swaying taiko drums

The Tsuribashi Festival - Swaying taiko drums

On August 4 each year, in honor of “bridge day”, a unique performance of “swaying taiko drumming” is held on the Tanize Suspension Bridge, a steel wire bridge that at 297 m in length and 54 m in height is one of the longest in Japan and is open to the public. The local OMC Totsugawa Taiko Club, Kodama, is brave enough to put on a true-to-life show atop the suspension bridge, and as they perform the sky resounds with the spectacular intensity of their music.
