PHOTOS, VIDEO: Matsuriza Taiko Drummers Return to the Japan Pavilion at EPCOT

The Japan Pavilion at EPCOT is once again filled with the sounds of drums with the return of Matsuriza.


Prior to performing, the group’s banner hung once again at the pavilion’s pagoda, with drums in place for the show.


The fifteen-minute show features two different sets, each showcasing the taiko drumming tradition of Japan.

The group last performed at EPCOT in March 2020, just before the park shut down for several months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, Sergio the Italian Juggler and Alberta Bound also returned to the park on Friday, marking a big comeback for live entertainment.
