Togen Daiko was formed in April 1996, at the Oxnard Buddhist Temple in Oxnard, California.  Our public debut was only two months later at the Oxnard Obon Festival.

Togen Daiko's performance pieces and style have been a group effort and shaped by our current Artistic Director Bruce Arikawa, a past member of Los Angeles's Kinnara Taiko, who came on board and took over the teaching job in January 1997

The group has created a variety of performance pieces that both our young, as well as, our young-at-heart members enjoy playing. We continue to expand our repertoire mixing visual movements with a variety of taiko styles

Being one of the few Ventura County taiko groups, we share the distinctive taiko sounds with communities from as far south as Vista, and up to San Luis Obispo.
