This is a public performance of the female entertainers who are members of the Tokyo Kagurazaka Association of Kagurazaka in Shinjuku. Members will perform a variety of traditional songs and dances, recitals, and musical pieces. This performance has been a yearly tradition since 1963. Each part of the performance usually draws around 400 viewers for a total of 1,200 for all three parts. The goal of this performance is to preserve, maintain, and develop the traditional arts, as well as to share them with people both inside and outside Shinjuku.
Tokyo Kagurazaka Association
Since 1963 the traditional artists of the Geisha district have held the Kagurazaka dance, where they perform traditional songs and dances, recitals, and musical pieces. They work to preserve, maintain, and develop the traditional arts, and this year the Kagurazaka Dance was designated a Shinjuku Ward Local Cultural Treasure. The Association hopes that these valuable parts of traditional Japanese culture can be passed down to the next generation and shared with people all over Japan.
