Hokkai Ideyu Daiko Upcoming Performance Schedule

October is in full swing here in Noboribetsu Onsen and in preparation for Kanpukai. The word Kanpukai (観楓会) consists of 観 (view) , 楓 (autumn leaves) and 会 (group event), and is our Hokkaido expression for autumn leaf viewing parties. Because these usually include onsen stays, Hokkai Ideyu Daiko, Dai-ichi Takimotokan’s very own taiko group, will offer several lively performances!

Founded 35 years ago, Hokkai Ideyu Daiko is a designated folk cultural property of Noboribetsu City. The original group, however, dissolved. The current version, some of whom are Dai-ichi Takimotokan employees and people who have a connection with Noboribetsu, began in 1998. Their performances pulse with the energy and vibrancy of skilled musicians. Many of our guests plan their stay with us each year to hear them play.

Please join us for Kanpukai, some delicious sake, and a delicious Autumn Fair all while enjoying the stunning performance of Hokkai Ideyu Daiko. Arrive a little early to make sure you get a spot with a good view of the drummers. You don’t want to miss it!
