The nagado-daiko (long-bodied taiko) is by far the most popular taiko (drum) used in Japan. They have a characteristically deep, reverberant sound.
The drum I put on auction has the painting of rising sun fans, a symbol used during samurai period similar to the Gunsen fan. Gunsen (軍扇) were folding fans used by the average warriors to cool themselves off. They were made of wood, bronze, brass or a similar metal for the inner spokes, and often used thin iron or other metals for the outer spokes or cover, making them lightweight but strong. Warriors would hang their fans from a variety of places, most typically from the belt or the breastplate, though the latter often impeded the use of a sword or a bow.
The martial aspect of the drum and its overall patina may locate its creation during the middle of the 20th century 1930-50.
There are no cracks on the leather skin and the sound is nice.
As seen on the pictures some painting on the leather skins went off with the use of the drum.
The painting went off in some points on the sides with a large part without it that seems to have been repaint over as the pictures show, luckyly it is on a side without any fan painting. Some rust in some of the nails.
The drum size is 19.5cm of diameter, large 23 and tall 24
