Narita Drum Festival
(成田太鼓祭)
Aprile 2017 (2017年4月)

This festival is one of the biggest drum festivals in Japan and it is opened at the Naritasan Shinshoji Temple and on the Omote Sando Street in Narita, the Chiba region, Japan.


The Narita Drum Festival begins, every year in April, with a deafening silence of a thousand people, then the sound of a flute, still a fraction of silence and about 800 players start beating on the skins of the Taiko (Japanese drums) in unison.


All the Omote Sando Street that starts from the Narita train station stop at Naritasan Shinshoji Temple comes to life, a dozen boxes scattered along the edges of the street are ready to host the afternoon sessions with the Taiko performed by groups of Fudendaiko.


And while the sun sets in front of the Naritasan Shinshoji Temple, the evening concert begins - the last effort as the Taiko Drums salute the audience, mother nature and the pagan gods.

Narita Drum Festival
(成田太鼓祭)
Aprile 2017 (2017年4月)



Il Narita Drum Festival inizia, tutti gli anni ad aprile, con un silenzio assordante di un migliaio di persone, poi il suono di un flauto, ancora una frazione di silenzio e circa 800 suonatori iniziano a battere sulle pelli dei Taiko (tamburi giapponesi) all’unisono.

Tutta la Omote Sando Street che parte dalla fermata della Narita train station fino al Naritasan Shinshoji Temple prende vita, una decina di palchi sparsi lungo i bordi della via sono pronti ad ospitare le sessioni pomeridiane con i tamburi Taiko eseguite da gruppi di Fudendaiko.

E mentre il sole lascia spazio al calar della sera, di fronte al Naritasan Shinshoji Temple inizia il concerto serale, l’ultima fatica, il congedo del suono del tamburo dal publico, dalla natura e dagli dei.
