Tokorozawa Festival



The annual Tokorozawa Festival was this week! So I'll be posting photos of the festival for a few days.

This was part of the opening ceremony in front of Daiei, a Taiko (Japanese drum) performance by the group Ayame. All the Taiko players synchronized their movements, so you could enjoy not only listening to the powerful sound, but also by watching them perform.
