Nikko: Local Japanese Performing Arts "Taishu-Engeki"

2. Nikko: Local Japanese Performing Arts "Taishu-Engeki"

Taishu-Engeki is one of the Japanese traditional entertainment, which is a cousin of Kabuki. In contrast to Kabuki, popular theater is more casual and easy-going. The troupe in this theater comes to Nikko from somewhere in Japan, and departs from Nikko after a few months of performances. They spend most of the year in theaters all over Japan. The theater means a small theater for popular plays called "Shibai-goya'',and "Nikko Momiji-za" is one of them. Performers often come off stage to shake hands with fans. This kind of casualness is one of its charms. In the dance show, dancers wearing kimono perform not only traditional Japanese songs but also world hits, and the program changes each time. In historical dramas, you can get a glimpse of how Japanese people lived in the era of samurai, geishas, and ninjas. It is possible to take photos of the dance show. You can also shake hands and take photos with the dancers at the end of the show.

Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 3 reviews

Japanese amusement park perfect for young and old and even in winter. The activities offered are simple but terribly fun (throwing shuriken, cooking pancakes, Japanese wooden games, etc.) and when you get there you receive a small present. For shows, the ninja one is at the top of the list. And the city of Shiragawa is calling us back. Be careful, however, if you leave Tokyo by train without speaking Japanese, you have to hang on, but luckily we always find someone to help us here.

There are plenty of activities for kids to enjoy - the Ninja training was a big hit with our grandkids - and the Ninja and Water Magic shows we saw were good too. Be prepared to remove your shoes to enter some of the show areas though. Good is available, but the queues can be long.

Funny park with a lot of fun traditional shows inside. There are lots of mini games and food with just a few bucks extra.
