At the Korakukan, a playhouse in the Meiji era, we are still performing regular performances (popular plays, etc.) for over 100 years. In 2021, "Shitamachi Kabuki-gumi" will perform a popular drama in May, July, and August, "Jun Kanzaki & 10carats" will perform a boys review show in September, and the theater company "Yumeiro" will perform a comedy historical drama "Yumeiro" in October. "Kanzaki Hioka Nun" will be performed. Since it is a structure that can be enjoyed regardless of age, many customers come to the event, and school excursion students from elementary school to high school also visit. After a century, please enjoy watching the theater at Korakukan, which is still an active theater. Kosaka Town, Akita Prefecture, is a town that prospered at the Kosaka Mine. In 1910, the Meiji playhouse "Korakukan" was built as a welfare facility for employees of the Kosaka Mine. The exterior of the building is Western-style and the inside is a pure Japanese-style playhouse. The most distinctive feature of the playhouse is the creation of a mix of Japanese and Western styles, which is rare. A staff member wearing a Kuroko costume will guide you through the facility tour of Korakukan. Enjoy behind the scenes of a live playhouse with scales from your eyes!

Scales from the eyes! A living playhouse!

Kuroko staff will guide you around the stage that is moved by human power and the dressing room where the actor's graffiti is left. You can observe the scales falling from your eyes (?), "I see." "Is that so?" The Tokihatsu play features theatrical companies and actors belonging to the downtown Kabuki group in Tokyo. It consists of two parts, a play and a dance. During the performance, there are scenes where the rotating stage and the auction actually move, so you can truly experience a living playhouse.

From play (historical drama) to contemporary drama

In historical drama, humanity plays and sword plays that approach devilishness. With laughter and tears, you will be drawn into the live play that takes place in front of you. September is a gorgeous musical show.

Dance show

Impressed by the dance show using the stage equipment, such as the rotating stage and the terrapin (soft-shelled turtle) unique to Korakukan! It is composed of nostalgic songs and the latest songs.
