What's Needed For Level-headed Tactics
Drum Tao aims for blockbuster grandeur in its latest production Based in mountainous Oita Prefecture in northeastern Kyushu, the privately owned and run Drum Tao company has barely paused from pounding away at the international entertainment market since it launched its overseas ambitions with a sold-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2004. Since then, the troupe of wadaiko (traditional Japanese drum) performers has taken what it calls its “rhythm of tribe” to more than 500 cities across 26 countries — including seven tours of Germany, six of the United States (with one off-Broadway run) and others to Singapore, China, Kazakhstan and the Philippines — along the way, playing to an astonishing 8 million people. To tap into the energy driving this phenomenon, I visited the Alternative Theatre in Tokyo’s central Yurakucho neighborhood where Tao opened its latest show, “Mangekyo” (“Kaleidoscope”), in May this year. There, Tao’s president and artistic director, Ikuo Fujitaka (aka Franco Drao), made time to talk frankly about the group’s success strategy and its new “Jiku Ryokoki” (“Travel Book of Space-Time”) show, which premieres in Tokyo on July 19. We begin by discussing a November 2017 report showing that many of the projects funded in the government’s Cool Japan campaign — a 2010 strategy to enhance economic growth by promoting areas of culture such as manga, anime, gaming, food, fashion, traditional performing arts and J-pop — had failed to even approach their revenue targets. Not only that, but the theater industry in Japan saw hardly any financial support from Cool Japan and has concentrated even more since then on domestic demand. So why is Tao doing so well at home and worldwide, when there’s little to show for that much-vaunted Cool Japan initiative? “Though Cool Japan was meant to follow the lead of South Korea’s government in fostering its now booming worldwide entertainment industry,” Fujitaka, 59, explains, “most theater producers and administrators here unfortunately don’t have the know-how to appeal to foreign customers or develop international markets. So they just grabbed the Cool Japan crumbs on offer without having any strategy as to how to grow their business or appeal to foreign customers. “In contrast, we’re doing well without receiving any government subsidies, and JTB (Japan Travel Bureau) recently singled out ‘Kaleidoscope’ as an entertaining show that’s especially appealing to the growing number of foreign visitors.” Currently, Tao has 45 performers split into three divisions. One group mainly tours in Japan and overseas, while another works on “Kaleidoscope” and the third concentrates on developing a permanent wadaiko-themed village and culture at their home base in Oita.

Need To Plan The The Trip Of Your Dreams? Use This Advice!
Travel lets us broaden our minds and experience things we would never otherwise be able to experience. Even then, it may be difficult to avoid preconceived notions that hamper enjoyment. This tips will help with that. They come from people that have traveled all over the world.
Avoid food allergies when going abroad by not going to places that cannot translate. If you suffer from severe food allergies, make sure you are able to speak those food related terms in the native language of your travel destination. This way, you can easily explain your allergies to waitstaff or chefs in restaurants or--should something happen--medical professionals.
Plan your trip months ahead of time. There are many things you purchase for travel, most of them are cheaper, the earlier you buy them. Also, you can enjoy the experience with your friends or family.
If you are traveling through a small airport, find out from the airport's website which airlines serve that airport. Some of them will offer charter flights that you can't see when searching for deals, and they might be able to get you a good price.
There's no reason you can't bring your dog with you on the right type of vacation. There are many pet friendly hotels and vacation sites now. These can include doggy day care, a cat spa, or a pet friendly cruise. Don't leave your pets at home; just make sure you can bring them with you.
Ask to see if your credit card company has insurance coverage for traveling abroad. For example, some cards provide insurance coverage in the case of a cancelled flight that has been charged to the card. Know what you have before you go on your trip.
If you plan on leaving your car at the airport parking lot, it is smart to book it before the day you travel. You should save money this way. If the airport is not too far away from your home, it may be less expensive to pay for a taxi to take you to the airport instead of paying for parking.
To enjoy your destination to its fullest, don't forget to factor in the weather. Check the local weather forecast for your destination before traveling. If the weather is uncooperative you may need to make last-minute changes to your itinerary.
Schedule an early flight to try and avoid delays. Because flights are often full, delays in one plane can cause a domino effect as the gates become crowded. The very first morning flight should not have many reasons to delay.
When traveling it is a good idea to carry cards that state food allergies in the national language of your chosen destination. This will give your server a good idea of what you are able to eat. This will help your dining experience to be a positive one.
Are you ready to travel now? They will also open the door for many new experiences. Use these tips as needed. When your next trip comes along, you will be well prepared.
