you can watch the performances by the artists who are active on the front lines from young to veteran.
Because of the spread of COVID-19, we will only distribute it online, and broadcast it on the official YouTube channel from Kagurazaka this year.
The venue of broadcasting will be at Akagi jinja shrine of modern architecture, “Ozashiki” Japanese-style room at a historical cuisine, a concert venue, and Yarai Noh Theater and Session House of dance theater for the first time.
