With the beautiful four seasons
In a blessed climate
Awaji doll that has been passed down
From the Edo period to the beginning of the Showa period, there were about 40 puppet theaters, large and small, on Awaji Island.
One of them, the tools of Yoshida Tojiroza Awaji Puppet Theatre Has inherited and is performing.
Awaji Ningyo Joruri, which has a history of more than 500 years, retains the old ones with the times, while adding new ones, the essence of which has been inherited unchanged.
You can fully feel the charm of each of the powerful Gidayu's story, the sound of the shamisen that echoes in the bottom of your stomach, and the movement of the doll that shines with delicacy in the liveliness.
Audio guides in foreign languages are available for rent at the theater. If you wish, please speak to the staff.
* There is no Japanese audio guide.
