New Year celebration 2018
2-3 January 2018
Koishikawa Korakuen Garden
Koishikawa Korakuen is a Japanese garden created in 1629, during the Edo period, by the Mito branch of the Shogun Tokugawa family. The garden with a pond represents a landscape of mountains, rivers, lakes and fields.
The annual New Year celebration will take place at this beautiful garden, with joyful shishimai (the dance of the lion) and traditional juggling performances.
◆New Year performance of “Edo Daikagura”
The performance of shishimai (Lion Dance) and traditional juggling by the group “Maruichisenoshachu” will be staged twice at 11.30 am and 1 pm on 3 January (to be cancelled in case of rain).
Have you ever seen an artist twirl a Japanese umbrella with a ball on the top without dropping it? Or juggling with a teapot? The Daikagura, that is it.
