Taiko no Tatsujin

From Rhythm Cons Wiki

Taiko no Tatsjin is a rhythm game by Bandai-Namco featuring a large drum-shaped controller.

There are 4 force-sensitive regions on the drum:

  1. Center Left, referred to as Don
  2. Center Right, also referred to as Don
  3. Rim Left, referred to as Ka
  4. Rim Right, also referred to as Ka

The notes in-game do not care which side of the drum is hit.
