Kanjinchô is one of the most popular plays in the kabuki repertoire and is one of the “Kabuki Jûhachiban” – or great 18 plays of kabuki.

Tomoe Arts focuses on kabuki dance plays based on noh themes and stories. It began in November with a tale of a flesh-eating demoness and continues  in February to one of the greatest tales of duty and heroism, ending in April with the foolish drunken antics of two servants.
