This program of traditional entertainments provides the chance to enjoy both yose vaudeville, which flourished amid the merchant culture of Edo, and the traditional performing arts of the geisha world. The first part features a number of yose performances, primarily rakugo comic storytelling, while the second presents dance and music performances by geisha from Tokyo’s six geisha districts (Shimbashi, Akasaka, Asakusa, Kagurazaka, Yoshicho and Mukojima), along with performances by the professional jesters called hokan. We hope that the audience will enjoy this traditional performing arts show conjuring up the spirit of Edo in modern-day Tokyo.

The program will be held with measures designed to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
Please kindly understand and check the official website.

*The latest information on program changes and cancellations will be announced on the official website.
