UPDATES

It has been a challenging year for our group, as I'm sure it has been for most, but we made the best of it by practicing virtually and, when stay-at-home orders were eased, socially-distanced in the park.

As obon season rolled around we celebrated with our version of Zoom obon - we played taiko/shamisen/fue, danced bon odori, ate manju and had a raffle. A little bit of normality with a virtual twist kept our spirits up!
As this crazy year was finally coming to a close (thank goodness!) we decided to work on a Christmas project, our 2020 accomplishment. We had a blast making it and hope you enjoy watching it! Merry Christmas to all and may we be able to play together in person with you again in 2021. Cheers!

Merry Christmas 2020 Togen Daiko

Togen Daiko was formed April 1996 at the Oxnard Buddhist Temple in California with only a handful of people and has now grown to a group of 17 members diverse in cultural background and age. Our style is Japanese American Buddhist taiko that emphasizes group harmony and shared development. Our pieces are group-composed and shaped by Artistic Director Bruce Arikawa, a past member of Los Angeles' Kinnara Taiko, who joined the group January 1997 and took over the teaching 
responsibility. 

On November 5, 2016 Togen Daiko celebrated it's 20th Anniversary with a concert for the community. We Thank You for making it a successful event. We Thank our sponsors, our donors, our nonprofit collaborators and most especially our loyal community. 



We look forward to continue our growth and celebration in sharing this tradition.  

Together Celebrating Tradition!
