The Kagurazaka Street Stage tour showcases traditional Japanese performing arts in an area that was formerly a residential district for Samurai attached to Edo castle. From the 1600s Kagurazaka became famous for its entertainment, cuisine and geisha.

The event takes place over two days and in several locations around Zenkokuji temple. Saturday’s entertainment is from 3.30pm – 9.30pm and Sunday’s from 11am – 4.30pm. There will be a variety of musical performances including wandering troupes of singers and shamisen players, tea ceremonies and a stamp rally. Almost everything is free but geisha performances must be booked and paid for in advance. See the link above for a detailed breakdown of available events.

Nearest stations are Kagurazaka on the Tozai Line and Iidabashi on the Tozai, Sobu, Namboku and Toei Oedo Lines.
