A Long-Run Hit Play at Warabi-Za

Warabi-za is a theater company whose headquarter is located in Tazawako Art Village. Or, should we say that Tazawako Art Village is Warabi-za’s headquarter? (Japanese Official Website)

Anyway, Warabi-za is not like any others-- whose dedication to the preservation of Japanese traditional folk arts is both nationally and internationally recognized. In the course of 60 years history, Warabi-za has established its own multi-purpose facility like onsen, restaurants and hotel-- only in an effort to support their own theater group.

Yamagami-Sama No Okurimono (山神様のおくりもの)
is currently in Warabi-za Theater.

This is a story inspired by a local tradition of bear hunting (matagi). A very unique theme and only Warabi-za can do a great job on such theme!! Yamagami-sama no Okurimono is a long-run hit play of Warabi-za since 1999. Now with new actors, it has been growing its popularity again!
