Renjishi Japanese Dance

7:00pm
¥2,500 – ¥3,000

Renjishi is a famous Japanese dance emoting the story of two lion-like creatures navigating a rather austere father-son relationship. As it goes, the father drops his offspring down the side of a mountain with the aim of instilling strength, discipline and determination in the young cub.

The dance was performed for the first time for a private audience in the late 1800s with lyrics by renowned dramatist Kawatake Mokuami. While the dance has a long, rich history, it remains relevant in modern times—the mystical beasts are official mascots for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan!

The performance will take place at the National Theatre of Japan (Small Hall). The closest stations to the theater are Hanzomon Station or Nagatacho Station.

Tickets are ¥2,500 for advance tickets (register online), otherwise they’re ¥3,000 at the door.
