Taiko (Japanese drum) is a traditional Japanese percussion instrument, and now Taiko performances are seen at Japanese festivals all over the country. The Taiko show Mangekyo is not an ordinary drum performance, which consists of proficient skills of Taiko and digital technology.

Drum Tao, one of the highly-praised nonverbal entertainment groups in the world, gives a performance in Tokyo after the performers achieved success in 500 cities around the globe. The stage with colorful digital projection is produced by the famous group of ultratechnologists teamLab, which is known for the DIGITAL ART MUSEUM in Tokyo. The name of the show Mangekyo means a kaleidoscope in Japanese, and you will feel as if you were in the world of a kaleidoscope during the performance.
