English Kagura Experience
June 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm¥1000
The Prefectural Art Museum located next to Shukkei-en Garden hosts regular performances of Hiroshima Kagura specifically for overseas visitors. As well as a short introduction in English, a screen next to the stage provides simple summaries of what is happening in each act.
Best of all, audience members have an opportunity to ask members of the night’s kagura troupe questions with the help of an interpreter. The experience finishes with a chance to check out and try on the gorgeous costumes and masks and take souvenir photos.
