“School Workshop Performances in Nagano” by Masaru Tsuji
June 20, 2015
We are currently in Matsumoto, Nagano, using taiko to facilitate exchange with school children. Our visits are mainly to elementary schools, as well as some junior high schools, schools for children with special needs, and schools for children with visual impairments.
Everyday we are surrounded by kids, and they are all so sweet.
I don’t know what kind of impact our visit and taiko playing has on each child. I imagine that each and every one of them has their own unique response to us. I hope that our visit will make them feel something new, and maybe that will have an influence on them in the future in some way.
The world is filled with wonderful things that I hope these kids will experience throughout their lives. When I visit each school, I hope our visit and interaction with them is one of many good experiences for them.
We have two days to go of School Performances in Matsumoto. It has been great here.
I’ll do my best for the remaining performances and I’m looking forward to next time already!
