One of the largest drum festivals in Japan, the Narita Drum Festival takes place over two days and features many different performances. The “Pray for Peace” event is guaranteed to thrill with the powerful sound of 800 taiko drummers playing together in the plaza before the main hall of Naritasan Shinshoji Temple. In the Street Concert event, over 20 drum teams perform on stages located throughout Omotesando Street, adding much excitement along the path to the temple from JR and Keisei Narita stations. The darkening sky is filled with sound in another main event, the Night Drum Concert. Finally, for a truly impressive sight, witness the Drum Parade in which dance and drum teams perform in harmony.
