A taiko group often practices in Moriyama on Saturdays. Sometimes they sound like a professional group, but January 23, 2016, was a practice day for children. This recording is the end of one nonstop session that lasted about 15 minutes.
They practice very close to the Shikansen high-speed train tracks. In the recording we can hear trains pass at about 1:50, 3:12, and 5:20.
We can also hear some kids shouting in the background. They were playing baseball and soccer nearby on the other side of the Shinkansen tracks.

This park extends upriver (southeast) to Yasugawa Sports Park in Ritto City. Even on a gloomy day it’s a nice place to take a walk.
