“A-hoj! 2021” is a new performing arts festival, where various puppet shows, music and artistic forms from Japan and the world are intermingled. In the last edition.
“A-hoj!“ means “Hey!“ or “Hello!“ and is a greeting which shows great affection towards the person you meet. The festival will transform the urban landscape of Shinjuku, where various cultures intersect, and will offer excellent artistic experiences to all people across generations and nationalities.
“A-hoj! 2021” has also a unique concept of accessibility, consisting of 5 elements: venue, language, age, economic circumstances and area.


【Puk Puppet Theatre】
Established in 1971. The first theater specializing in puppet theater in Japan. Since then, we have widely introduced high-quality puppet theater works from domestic and foreign traditions to the present. We will strengthen our cooperation with artists of all genres and strive to develop artistic creation. In 2021, we celebrated the 50th anniversary .
