As Pasona staff knew it would be very hot on Awaji Island during the summer, the Japanese Taiko drumming experience was arranged in the early morning of Day 5. At 8:45 am, the participants arrived at “Nojima Scuola”, a renovated closed-down elementary school. As a symbol of regional revitalization, Pasona Group gave the school new life by converting it into a multifunction facility including a restaurant, market, cafe and bakery. With an intact and functioning gymnasium, the participants could learn how to play the Japanese drum. The instructor was a musician from “Music Island”, a violinist as well as a Taiko player, who has been playing Taiko for 5 years since joining Pasona Group. The participants were very proactive and keen on practicing, and after 2 hours, they could perform one song together.
