The Asakusa Daiko at the Geisha Rehearsal Hall
The Tokyo-Edo Radio Project has been broadcasting radio programs over the Internet since 2009, under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and Science, and Toyota Foundation. Our programs drew the attention of the University of London School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), and the idea of a co operation between our two universities was born. This event will be the first joint production between the two radio stations. It is our hope that Meiji University and University of London School of Oriental and African Studies can conclude a co-operation agreement and expand our activities across the borders together. One of our project members, Mr. Miyamoto Unosuke, will together with Ms. Kashima Kikuno - an Asakusa geisha - be in the spotlight as they demonstrate and perform the traditional Asakusa Daiko - the music and the instrument.This will be the first joint production between Tokyo- Edo Radio and SOAS Radio. We hope you will come to enjoy it. Itoda Soichiro Professor, Meiji Univ. School of Letters Project Leader, Tokyo-Edo Radio
