Drum Fun


This is a really fun game at the local arcade, which we call "game centers." It's called Taiko no Tatsujin (Master of Taiko) and what you do is, you choose a song from their list, hold the two drum sticks, and while watching the screen, hit the drum according to the instructions! The instructions appear on the screen in different shapes and colors, which stand for different ways of hitting the drum, and in the end it adds up your total score for you. If you pass, you get to play a more difficult song!


It's a lot of fun because two people get to play at once and even if you don't get a high score...hitting the drum is seriously a stress reliever! hehe.

Excellent! Must be a bit of a cacophony though!

I have seen the real drum beaters so I can't imagine what this is like.

It looks like a lot of fun.

A bit of a YouTube audio-visual soundtrack here.

After working up a sweat with those drumsticks you could cool down with these.

Noticed the UFO CATCHER 8 in the reflection.

"hitting the drum is seriously a stress reliever"

Hahaha! I never thought of it that way before. I should try it in our game arcades sometime. :)

It's all so beautiful. The bridge,the reflection,the sky, everything.

«Louis» would try this, but thinks that trying to hold drumsticks in his hooves might pose a bit of a challenge...

Thank you for the comments, everyone! You'll all have to come and try this out :D

Tall Gary, that kid in the youtube video is amazing! I can't even see his drumsticks! My sisters are pretty good at it, too. Me? I talk and laugh too much to keep up! haha

Hilda, Arabesque, do they have it in the Philipines? I'd love to see you two try that out :D

Louis, with such powerful hooves, I don't think you'll be needing the drumsticks ;D
