Earth Celebration

The Earth Celebration is held by the Kodo Taiko Group on an annual basis. The Kodo Taiko Group is based on Sado Island and for the festival there are different guest artists who collaborate with them. It is a three-day event that is usually held in mid to late August all around Ogi Town. There are thousands of people who come to the island to participate in all the festivities of the Earth Celebration. The main concert, known as the Kodo Village Concert, is held in the evening on Friday at the Kodo Village. It is the only concert where all the guest artists and the Kodo Taiko Group perform. Smaller concerts are held in the Shukunegi Community Hall in the afternoons. In addition to the concerts there is the Harbor Market that held every day at Ogi Harbor. There are also workshops available like taiko drumming and traditional dance.
