A traditional performing art from ancient times from the western Iwami region of Shimane Prefecture.
As a person based in Osaka, I happened to have the opportunity to watch the performance, and I was absolutely fascinated by its power, grandeur, and most of all, how beautifully it conveys the Japanese culture and feel.
Free admission without application at the reservation stage is not possible.
A facility that performs regularly requires performers to perform regularly.
Moreover, since the program is the traditional performing arts Iwami Kagura, first of all we had no relationship or knowledge to realize the culture, starting with people, things, and buildings. However, we received cooperation from a company, whose headquarters was in Shimane. Whether it was accidental or necessary, the Osaka performance facility of Iwami Kagura began to move in earnest toward realization, but of course it was not as simple as it sounds.
We want to make it easy for you and the rest of the world to feel the traditional and wonderful performing arts of Japan! That feeling and memory will never change.
And I believe that Osaka is a place that will make golbal perspectives come true. In addition to the sound management of the facility, “Naniwa Juku” is annexed as a training institution for traditional performing arts. I hope that this institution will be shared with as many people as possible, not just in Japan, and that this facility will be useful from the perspective of cultural conservation, and that it will continue to carry on its mission in the future.
