They formed in December of 2000 from the Dharma School (Sunday School) of the Steveston Buddhist Temple in Richmond. Their instructors for the first two and a half years were Mr. Shinobu Homma and Ms. Naomi Shikaze, from Chibi Taiko. Highlights of their performances include: Western Washington University “Culture Shock”, UBC Festival concerts, Aldergrove Canada Day Celebration, North American Sumo Championships, school shows, and collaborative performances with Chibi Taiko, Megumi Taiko, and Yamabiko Taiko.
