It’s that time of year when Tsukasa has to make more taiko stands. The Aoki family used to make all the stands: hira, sukeroku, yatai, yagura, miyake. Now we have more help as our drums have increased and our group has expanded. We work with a professional for some of our odaiko stands, but we also have a wonderful Tsukasa father who helps us make beautiful new stands as well as repair the old ones.
And here is our shinobue player measuring and cutting wood for our hira stands yesterday.
