Visits to Matsukawa Village, Nagano, Japan


Sept 28th and November 20th, 2008

Hard practice.

Hard practice.

The village of Matsukawa, hometown of the Shinano no Kuni Matsukawa Kyougaku Taiko Drummers is located in the central mountains of Nagano Prefecture on the main island of Honshu, Japan. Homma Kancho paid two visits to the village of Matsukawa this fall as director and coordinator of our drummer’s tour to Colombia in October. The first visit was in September to discuss details and logistics for the upcoming concert tour in Colombia, and the second visit was in November to assess the tour and to discuss a possible upcoming concert tour in the United Arab Emirates, in Abu Dhabi.

Homma Kancho has been an outstanding coordinator for all of the AHAN concert tours our drumming troupe has performed, and we all greatly appreciate his many efforts and all of the hard work it takes to make these incredible events happen.
