English Kagura Experience

July 27, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Takiyasha-hime performed by the Tenjin 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.


Admission is only ¥1000.

Doors open and tickets go on sale at 18:30 on the day of the show. The show starts at 19:00 and finishes at about 19:45. The performance is followed by a bilingual Q&A and opportunity to take photos with the players, masks and costumes.

Why not check out the art museum, special exhibitions and next door Shukkei-en Garden for a truly cultural afternoon and evening?
