Karakuriningyo Shibai-kan (Mechanical Doll Theater)

Karakuriningyo Shibai-kan (Mechanical Doll Theater)

Tracing back its origin to the first mechanical doll play performance produced by the Master Izumo TAKEDA in 1662 in Edo Era (1603-1867), Karakuriningyo shows are being performed in Kiryu on every first Saturday of the month. Kiryu is the sole municipality in Japan where they have been trying to restore its Karakuriningyo play as an important cultural heritage.
