Description

It’s a traditional type of street performance born in Japan that’s been handed down from the Edo period (1603-1867).

We offer you the rare chance to join a fun-filled workshop led by the professional performer Yoyohime.

At first you can see the private performance.
The performer holds a special screen made from bamboo sticks 20-30 centimeters long that are loosely woven with twine. This is rapidly twisted, folded and extended into various shapes while the performer chants an amusing poem describing the items to a distinctive rhythm. Among the many items portrayed are TAI (sea bream), Tokyo Tower, NIJI (rainbow) and KOKKI (national flag).
After a performance especially for you in a tatami-matted room, you can have a hands-on experience yourself with her guidance. You can even change into the special costume and immediately turn into an old-time street-performer….and, of course, take some commemorative photos.You can also enjoy other traditional entertainments like spinning a plate on a stick, playing beanbags, and making origami (the art of paper folding).
We hope this will serve as a wonderful memory of your visit to Asakusa.
