No Japanese Required: A Kimono and Theatre
A Truly Japanese Experience: Theatre in a Kimono
Even for those born and raised in Japan, putting on a kimono and styling one’s hair appropriately can be a challenge. Even for experienced Kimono wearers, putting one on can take well over 40 minutes. Meiji-Za theatre are offering people the chance to watch the performance “SAKURA -IN THE BOX-”, with their new “Kimono Rental Theatre Experience” plan.
“SAKURA -IN THE BOX-” blends a variety of traditional arts and music, along with pop culture such as anime and games in order to showcase Japan’s beauty and strength throughout the 4 seasons.
