Future schedule of the event is undecided, and we will announce the updates on this website later.
We apologize to everyone who has been looking forward to “Oedo Vaudeville Show and Traditional Geisha Dances X”. (04/20/2020)

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.
