Mitsuwa Marketplace’s annual summer festival Bon Odori was one of the first public events Tsukasa Taiko made an appearance at. Hide Yoshihashi, the founder of Tsukasa Taiko and some of our original Tsukasa core members began performing at this festival alongside Wakayagi Shiyu Sensei‘s Japanese classical dance troupe that led the”bon odori” dance circle.

Today, Tsukasa serves as one of the staple acts at this summer fest, and take pride in our 45-member community ensemble that perform at this event. In the more recent years, National Gintenkai Project members have made an appearance at Mitsuwa’s Bon Odori, joined by performers from our sister taiko group GenRyu Arts from San Francisco.
