A handheld Taiko drum made by stretching and stitching the skin over a hoop with a handle attached. Uchiwa-daiko means literally "fan drum." These drums were originally used by the Nichiren Buddhist sect to accompany chanting but are now in general use by most Taiko groups. They come in a variety of sizes and are normally seen set up in a rack so as to be played as a set.
