Daikagura event this Saturday! Juggling knives, parasols, balls of string, & more

This Saturday there is a Daikagura juggling performance in Tokyo this Saturday afternoon. Daikagura is one of Japan’s oldest performance traditions, and uses everyday objects like umbrellas, balls of strings and teapots. Metropolis magazine recently ran a feature on the Edo Daigakura Troupe and its 70 year old leader Sennoh who will be performing.

The event is a benefit for Polaris Project, a Tokyo-based NOG combating human trafficking. I will attend, and encourage any of my local readers to check it out if you’re free Saturday afternoon.

Details: Saturday, November 6 from 1.30 to 4.30 pm, at Sendagaya Community Center. 1-1-10 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku. Nearest stn: Harajuku or Meiji-Jingumae. Cost: ¥2,500 (¥1,000 for children 12 and under).

Space is limited, so if you’re thinking of going, please RSVP by email to daikagura@bucj.org.
