Wednesday Night Kagura

November 24, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 7:45 pm

Momijigari performed by the Uegochi Kagura Troupe

Regular kagura performances tentatively resume at Hiroshima Prefectural Citizen’s Hall (Rijo Kaikan) on Wednesday nights with some changes to the pre-Covid programs.

Non-Japanese viewers are, however, extremely welcome and the venue does provide a simple English synopses of the play to be performed on the night.
