Kyodo Taiko at UCLA


Kyodo Taiko is my family, my home away from home.

Kyodo was the first collegiate taiko group in the United States, and was started in 1990 by Mark Honda. "Kyodo" has two meanings, "family" and "loud children." The members definitely carry out these meanings, as is evident in this album.

I have included for your enjoyment pictures, video footage and interviews, explaining the importance and significance of Kyodo Taiko’s history and purpose. With this, I provide you with a glimpse into the life of a Kyodo Taiko member, a glimpse into my life.

Explore, Experience, Enjoy.
