In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Miyamoto Unosuke Shoten—a company that handles drums, portable shrines, and other festival-related items—opened the Drum Museum in 1988 to showcase drums collected from all over the world to the public. There are around 800 drums in this collection, ranging from giant to hand-held. These drums come from Asia, Africa, Europe, and the United States, and you can even try to play some of them.
Drums are believed to connect people with each other and with the gods, so take the opportunity to connect during your visit.
