O-edo Tour turns the streets of Kagurazaka into a showcase for various traditional Japanese performing arts. The event features leading artists, both young and seasoned, representing diverse genres that flourished in the neighborhood.
Shinnai Nagashi, in which a pair of shamisen artists perform while weaving through the streets; zashiki asobi (or “parlor games” you play with geisha); live concerts on the streets; and a stamp rally are just a few of the highlights.
Experience the stylish, vibrant facets of Japanese culture along with the ambiance of the pre-modern Edo period in Kagurazaka, where the new meets the traditional.
