English Kagura Experience

November 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

¥1000
Yamata-no-orochi performed by the Matsubara Kagura Troupe

This performance of Hiroshima Kagura is specifically tailored to 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.
