For our New Year show, we have Mr Igarashi‘s Candy Art, shooting game and spinning top game as our customary events. Furthermore, we added the mask making event from this year.
Participants can carve and paint their mask any colour they like, so you can complete your very own unique mask.
Another New Year customary event started this year. It seems as though no matter how many times they see it the Shishimai performance is scary! It’s heartwarming to see the parents holding the crying children while they a good luck bite on the head.

They are possibly the best animal imitating family. The father is the Third Edoya Nekohachi and the older brother is the Fourth Edoya Nekohachi. It was a very exciting stage, where they gave a short lesson on how to imitate animals.
The scene where they pretended to have their cheeks stuffed with Manjū had the children riveted. It’s seemed as though they could see the deliciousness of the Manjū as it was broken in half in their mind’s eye.
