What we do

Traditional Performing Arts for Kids

This program aims to inspire the next generation to carry on the traditional performing arts that Japanese people have cherished over the centuries, by teaching children about them. Over several months, participating children will receive direct instruction from leading performers in the fields of Noh theater, Nihon buyo dance, Sankyoku chamber music and Nagauta music, culminating in a public performance showcasing what they have learned. In addition, there will be classes as well as a special course for junior and high school students and a short community-based program during summer vacation in which students undertake everything from rehearsals to performances.


Umewaka Noh Theatre, Nihonbashi Kokaido, etc.
