World's best large drum

Have your breath taken away when first setting eyes on the massive drums at the Taiko Museum. The museum proudly displays six drums over two meters in diameter, the largest measuring 3.8m in diameter and weighing 3.5 metric tons. Additionally, there over 140 drums from forty countries around the world for visitors to take in.
