Mt. Hida is a beautiful, tall, rocky mountain especially scenic in autumn. During the annual harvest festival, taiko is always a main attraction. The intoxicating rhythms of the taiko are enough to cause even the most reluctant of audience members to get up and move with the music. The rhythms of various instruments are overlaid one upon the other, building up to a compelling crescendo reminiscent of the grandeur of Mt. Hida (Hida-san).
