Hand-held taiko drums are used in Nichiren Buddhism while chanting. In the picture above, you see members of the 2006 NONA pilgrimage posing for a picture after the Oeshiki parade at Ikegami Honmon-ji. The members are holding taiko which they used during the parade. Many stores in Japan carry such taiko, but here in the USA, it is a little harder to find such drums. Miyoshi Daiko produces drums in the US. If you would like your own hand held taiko, please consider visiting Miyoshi Daiko's web site by clicking the word Taiko above. Whereever youpurchase your taiko, ask your local minister to write the Odaimoku on it, as seen in several styles in the picture above.
