What we do

Oedo Vaudeville Show and Traditional Geisha Dances IX

This program of traditional entertainments provides the opportunity 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 districts (Shinbashi, Akasaka, Asakusa, Kagurazaka, Yoshicho and Mukojima), along with performances by a male entertainer called hokan. We hope that the audience will enjoy this traditional performing arts show conjuring up the spirit of Edo in modern-day Tokyo.
