Suwa-Daiko Japanese Drum Team Participates in Grand Yokkaichi Festival

The Sumitomo Wiring Systems Suwa-Daiko Drum team will participate in the 47th Grand Yokkaichi Festival held in downtown Yokkaichi City, Mie Prefecture, on Saturday, July 31 and Sunday, August 1. A local performing art, the Yokkaichi Suwa-Daiko Japanese drum is a tradition in Yokkaichi City and one of the premier events at the Grand Yokkaichi Festival.

The Sumitomo Wiring Systems Suwa-Daiko team has been practicing hard every day to promote this exchange with the local community and to contribute to the development of the local traditional art. As this year marks the 50th anniversary of Suwa-Daiko, 13 team members will display the fruits of their preparation to employees and community members. We would like to ask for your participation and cheers. We would also like to draw your attention to the women's happi coats that are even more colorful this year.
