Kodo Special Performances on Sado Island 2015: Autumn
"Kodo Special Performances on Sado Island" are concerts with a unique, nostalgic air that you can only experience on Sado Island.
The performances take place at Shukunegi Community Hall, a retro playhouse in the heart of the traditional village of Shukunegi. This settlement is classified as one of Japan's "important traditional building preservation areas."
Ogi is now even easier to reach thanks to the new "Akane" fast ferry service from Naoetsu Port. This autumn, please join us on picturesque Sado Island for these unforgettable performances, centered around Kodo's distinguished members.
We will hold "Taiko Experience" workshops five times a day. Access is easy by bus and our session times are set to coincide with the bus schedule. Everyone who takes part in a "Taiko Experience" during this special period will receive a small gift: an original Tatakokan postcard.
Here is your chance to experience harvesting a rice crop by hand and hanging it up to dry in the traditional way. We hope you will take part in this good old-fashioned harvest of Mother Nature's bounty when you visit Shukunegi for the autumn Kodo performances.
