Taikokoro Inc presents
Don’t miss this special opportunity of a 4-part workshop series led by Eri Uchida.
Eri was a performing member of Kodo for 10 years, leaving in 2019. She also oversaw training activities for incoming Kodo apprentices and facilitated workshops for visitors from within and outside of Japan. After departing Kodo, Eri joined forces with Sydney Shiroyama, an Occupational Therapist, and together they created the concept of TaikoIN’.
Through TaikoIN’, Eri aims to share the skills and philosophies she has learned from her taiko career with hopes of expanding the possibilities of taiko and its community.

Originally from Aichi Prefecture, Japan, Eri Uchida was deeply touched by her local taiko community where she grew up – so much so that while studying abroad in Canada during high school, she founded her own taiko group. To further her studies, Eri moved to Sado Island to join the KODO Apprenticeship Program in 2007 and became a performing member for KODO in 2009. Since then, she has traveled all over the world performing with the troupe, directing school presentations, as well as teaching workshops. Eri also produced KODO’s first overseas interactive concert. In addition, Eri oversaw the day-to-day workings of the KODO Apprenticeship Program, helping to train and welcome new KODO member prospects.
