Hello, everyone! This is Kengo Watanabe. It has been a while since my last Kodo Blog post.
Yesterday we arrived in Sakata City in Yamagata Prefecture. I visited Sankyo Soko, a rice storehouse that was built in 1893. It is still used today.
I also saw these great Japanese zelkova (keyaki) trees all in a row.
Today we have our final performance of Kodo Premium Concert “An Invitation from Tamasaburo Bando into the World of Kodo.” I look forward to seeing everyone at the theater!

I am currently on tour with “Yugen,” our brand new performance with Tamasaburo Bando, and we just completed three back-to-back performances in Niigata City. The theme of this work is the world of Noh theater.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to everyone who came to see our performances so far.
