There are places in the metropolis where we can catch a glimpse of the borderline demarcating the point at which it developed from Edo into Tokyo. These include Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum, which is a nationally designated Important Cultural Property, and downtown Hachioji, which was one of the largest textile-producing areas from the early 18th century through to the early 20th century. These two sites redolent of Tokyo’s history will host performances of Butoh, a style of physical expression originating in Japan that has won worldwide acclaim as a performing arts genre, and also performances by dancers inspired by the Butoh tradition.
