Dojo Facilities

The Mugen Taiko Dojo is a converted farmhouse surrounded by the gentle rolling hills of the South Lanarkshire countryside. The building is originally a 100 year old byre with two foot thick stone walls, and has been carefully converted into a purpose-built Taiko rehearsal space - the first of its kind in the UK.

With natural wood flooring, under-floor heating, and mirrored walls, and with a vast range of taiko drums & percussion, top quality instruments imported especially from Japan, the Dojo provides the ideal environment for learning this ancient discipline. There are also full facilities for the disabled.

The Dojo is located south of Glasgow, just off the M74, near the village of Strathaven. Travelling distance from Glasgow is 40 minutes, and from Edinburgh is 70 minutes. Visiting outside of set public workshops is by appointment only, as the Dojo is in constant use by the various training groups based here.
