Roppongi Hills New Year 2012

For the past 9 years, this taiko group (didn’t catch their name) has performed every new year at the Roppongi Hills Arena.

Watch their performance in the YouTube video below.

After the taiko performance, a ceremony was held to break open a sake barrel to be served to those who attended.
