A not so traditional show at Meijiza Theatre

Traditional performing art X Pop culture show

Other than the Shinjuku's robot show that we introduced to you earlier, if you are looking for some interesting shows to watch in Tokyo, we have another good one for you!

SAKURA -JAPAN IN THE BOX-


From September 2016, MEIJIZA started a new show which combines the Japanese traditional performing arts and the modern pop culture. It is a show especially made for people who are interested in seeing Japanese traditional and modern cultures in one night. From music and dances to animation and stage effects, audience can see different kinds of performance while following Sakura in this 70 minutes long journey.


About MEIJIZA Theater (明治座)

MEIJIZA is located in Chuo-ku in Tokyo. It was opened in 1873 since Meiji Period. It is used mainly for Japanese "Kabuki" show (歌舞伎) and traditional "Enka" music show (演歌).

About the story of Sakura

Sakura is a high-school girl who just can’t seem to find interest in anything. That all changes when she meets a white fox and is taken on a journey across a mysterious land. By travelling through spring, summer, autumn, and winter, she starts to discover what is truly important. (From official website)


In the animation and live performance, you can see Sakura and the characters representing Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter!

Don't worry about the language too since there is no lines for the characters in the show!

Let's get in the theater now!


Even the stage curtain is well designed and made!
