Japanese Foreign Minister honours Ireland’s Experience Japan Taiko!
Meet the Experience Japan Taiko Team
Founded in 2010 by Nobuko Ijichi, the Experience Japan Taiko Team is made up of UCD students later integrating Japanese-Irish secondary and primary students. The EJ Taiko Team has enjoyed major success and is in increasing demand to perform at public and high-profile events (+20 per year) highlighting cultural and friendship links between Japan-Ireland and with other cultural and heritage groups. Special performances include celebrations for 60th anniversary of Japan Ireland diplomatic relations; national and international sporting events including Ireland-Japan Rugby matches and the GAA World Games Series, Dublin City Council New Year Festival and many more. Their performances always draw large crowds across the generations, drawn in by the dynamic rhythms and the excitement of intercultural discovery and experience.
