Notes by TAIKOPROJECT:

Here are a few examples of TAIKOPROJECT’s arrangements of Omiyage, starting with the most recent and going back to the original version. Over the years, we have been able to refine many of the Omiyage patterns, movements, and choreography. We have also created numerous arrangements from full ensemble versions to small-ensemble versions. The taiko community is free to use any of these, or come up with your own!
