Wajima Taisai – Taiko Performances

Video from Wajima Taisai (Taisai means ‘big festival’ in Japanese…I think) in Wajima, Ishikawa, Japan. August 23, 2009. First performance is from the opening ceremonies on the beach and is more traditional Taiko. The second performance, from the 3rd night of the festival, is a style specific to the Wajima area and is pretty famous. It features this scary seaweed hair character that you can see in a lot of places around town. (there is even a special seaweed hair Hello Kitty keychain!)
