New Exadon Introductory Video

Kodo Cultural Foundation recently commissioned a video to introduce “Exadon,” an innovative fitness program centred around enjoying taiko (traditional Japanese drums), performing arts, and physical activity. This initiative was launched in 2014 with two main purposes: health promotion and preventive healthcare. The name Exadon combines three words: “exercise,” “Sado,” an island in the Sea of Japan, and the sound of beating a taiko drum, “don.” The idea for Exadon came from psychiatrist Dr. Yoshinori Morimoto, the director of Shiosai Clinic on Sado Island, whose proposal brought Sado City, Kodo Cultural Foundation, and Shiosai Clinic together for this collaborative venture. Today, the program aims to foster happiness in the community by connecting people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities.

Please share this video to help us spread the word about Exadon. We look forward to hearing from anyone who is interested in helping us develop the program or becoming a facilitator.
Together, we want to help engage communities so more people can look forward to happy, healthy futures. For further details, visit the Exadon website:
