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 

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!
