Takiyasha-hime performed by the Naka-kawado 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.

Every Wednesday, a different kagura troupe comes in from the countryside to perform
a 45-minute Hiroshima Kagura show in Hiroshima City. Unlike the An Evening of Kagura – English Kagura Experience shows there is no English interpretation, nor monitors displaying subtitles. 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.
