Galaxcity is a children’s community center in Adachi. To herald the new year, they are hosting a series of Japanese cultural events. “Hinomarhythm,” which will take place on January 24, is a folk music group who incorporate various traditional performing arts in their performance – reviving such forms as Tsugaru-shamisen, Japanese drums and Kagura. The show is interspersed with lighthearted chats between the two leading brothers, breaking down the distant and perhaps intimidating image of these traditional arts. On February 23, there will be a kabuki performance by actor Ichikawa Kudanji and Naritaya “troupe.” This is the perfect opportunity to listen to kabuki music and witness the “Seven Lucky Gods” dance.
