館内全景

Facilities

Sado Island Taiko Centre (also called Tatakokan) was built from local Sado Island timber and features a large hall, traditional cooking classroom, exhibition room, and meeting rooms. The Centre has large balconies that overlook Mano Bay and the Osado mountain range, providing visitors with stunning natural views all year round.

“Taiko Experience” programs and a range of other events are on offer here throughout the year. The facilities are also available for hire and often used by the local community and an array of groups for activities such as workshops, performances, music rehearsals, and meetings.

Tatakokan is home to two huge taiko drums that were hand-carved from an enormous 600-year-old keyaki (Japanese zelkova) log by members of taiko performing arts ensemble Kodo. These one-of-a-kind drums are on display and ready to be played by visitors to the Centre. Please drop by and hear their deep vibrations echo throughout the wooden hall and surrounding hills.

*Equipped with free wifi internet, barrier-free access, & accessible restroom facilities.
