"The Traditional Culture of Sado Island" 3-Day/2-Night Tour: Kodo's Background, Sado's Nature & Cuisine
Back to Past "News" Pages
The island areas of Japan have cultivated their own unique customs and cultures. However, in recent years the outward flow of population from these islands is on the rise and some of those distinct characteristics are becoming lost. Now, Sado Island in Niigata is drawing attention as an island where vestiges of old Japan visibly remain. This tour, accompanied by Makoto Shimazaki who has been involved with the promotion of culture on Sado Island for many years, will shine a light on a wide range of fascinating aspects of Sado Island, including the background of taiko performing arts ensemble "Kodo," Noh theater propagated by Zeami, Sado's unique natural environment and its food culture.
This tour will be conducted in Japanese.
