As we were all getting back on board the ship an announcement was made that there would be a taiko drum group bidding us farewell. We all ran to the 7th deck and watched as these extremely talented people for us. They all had huge smiles on their faces as the bravado of their movements stayed in perfect sync to the beat. The drums were loud and varied in size with one that was larger than a man. It was a great way to say goodbye to a wonderful culture that had treated us so kindly.
