■About “Hug Drum”
This drum was created based on the voices of hearing-impaired people who wanted to enjoy music.It is a drum that allows you to feel the sound of hitting the drum with your palm using light and vibration. The center of the striking surface produces a low pitched sound, and when you strike the edge, a high pitched pitch is produced and it emits light. There are also two vibrating speakers on the torso, and when you hold it, the inside part that touches your side reproduces the sound you hit, and the outside part that touches your arm reproduces the sound of the ensemble player.

This is a project that provides everyone with the joy of playing musical instruments. There are various reasons why people don’t play musical instruments, such as “They believe they have no talent,” “Have experienced setbacks,” “I don’t have a reason to start,” and “I’m worried about the noise.” If that’s the case, then why not create a new musical instrument that eliminates the reasons why people don’t play musical instruments? It’s okay if you don’t have a sense of rhythm or pitch. Noise doesn’t bother me. You can play easily and without hesitation, and you can choose the one that suits you best from a diverse lineup. The World Yuru Sports Association, which has developed over 100 “Yuru Sports” to date, will develop “Yuru Musical Instruments”.
