  • Japanese Traditional Art

Transforming the Entire Town of Kagurazaka as a Stage to Promote Japan’s Various Traditional Performing Arts for the Future!

The “night scene of Kagurazaka” is one of the charms of the town, and has contributed much to the attractive aspects of the cultural scenes. You will be able to enjoy the traditional performing arts at stylish restaurants, as you walk through the streets when the stone-paved alleys and black-board walls become alluring in the evening. It is an event that offers Kagurazaka’s charm that only can be experienced at night.

*For more details about “Main Festival,” please see here.

On the day of the event, we will announce program changes and cancellation on the official website and SNS(Twitter / Facebook)
