20th National Children’s Kabuki Festival in Komatsu (2018 Edition)

 

Every year, Komatsu hosts the National Children Kabuki Festival, invites children kabuki troupes from across the nation to perform in the city. This wonderful festival first began in 1999 and is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year!

The children are usually from elementary grades 4 – 6 (roughly equivalent to 9-12 years of age), and of course, the local Komatsu children will also be participating.

Can you guess which play Komatsu will be putting on?

 

If you guessed Kanjincho, you’d be right!
The festival began in part to promote appreciation of the local kabuki history and traditions among the local children, as well as to allow greater exchange within the children kabuki community. Since it’s managed to reach its 20th year, they are doing pretty well don’t you think?
