Memorable, entertaining authentic cultural experience for a cheap price. Great dancing, amazing costumes, good music as well. Truly a good experience.

This show takes place once a week on Wednesday. It is easily accessible and an English synopsis is provided. The dancers music and costumes are delightful . Locals young and old make up the vast majority of the audience.

Great show to see if you want a taste of Kagura. At about 45 minutes, the length was perfect to get an introduction and fit into a busy day.

Maybe it was not the same show, since it took place at the „Hiroshima Prefectual Art Museum“. It was Kagura performed by „non professionals“. The actors and the musicans were really passionate and did a great job. Not a boring second and on top of...More

Although it was in Japanese, they had flyers explaining the stories in English. I really enjoyed the dancing and music. It's a must go if you're looking for more traditional entertainment.

Even though it was not a high level, professional production play, it seemed like a lot of heart was put into performances and some actors were really talented. I watch a lot of traditional opera/dance/theater when I travel, this one was one of the best!...More

We had a great time watching two Kagura performances. The shows were dramatic, the dancing entertaining and the costumes incredibly colourful and elaborate. Tickets are on sale for 1,000 yen at the venue from 5pm and doors open at 6pm. The first show doesn't start...More

We had a blast here. Kagura performances are vibrant, expressive and loud- a far-cry from the slow pace of Noh and Kabuki. Kids were in the audience loving the costumes and showiness. ¥1000 for two 45-minute shows plus an opportunity to meet the actors and...More

I've never heard of Kagura, so, was thrilled to experience the dramatic, colorful and entertaining show! Kagura originated as a Shinto ritual as a gratitude for agricultural bounty. This folk art form has been preserved and is popular with the younger generation. The shows are...More
