Nothing comes close to matching the Narita Drums Festival’s 700-strong taiko troupe. Despite the martial sound of the instruments, the event at the stately Buddhist Naritasan Shinshoji temple is, in fact, staged as an expression of hopes for peace. The weekend begins Saturday morning with a performance by the full troupe, and then sees over 20 drum teams plying the streets in the afternoons and a grand concert on Saturday evening. The festival concludes on Sunday with a parade of drummers and traditional dancers down the main drag to the temple.

Apr 16-17, free. Naritasan Shinshoji Temple. Nearest stn: Narita. www.naritasan.or.jp
