“From Berlin, Germany” by Jun Akimoto
Here is a picture of our sold-out audience at Berliner Philharmonie on March 5.
They say that this concert hall has the best sound in the world and it is mainly used for classical music, so it is a great honor for Kodo to perform regularly at this hall.
During the tour, we not only practice taiko, but also do voice training. Everyone sounds great!

Our tour manager, Takashi, and stage manager, Takeshi, are perfectly in sync measuring the stage.

A friend of a Kodo staff member opened a rice ball A friend of a Kodo staff member opened a rice ball restaurant called “Nigi Berlin” and brought rice balls along for us. They were so delicious. The filling in each one was big and they have a lot of original flavors. I recommend them!
