Kodo Special Performances on Sado Island 2015: Spring

Join us for springtime fun next Golden Week with our "Kodo Special Performances on Sado Island"! Next spring, the launch of the new Hokuriku Shinkansen (bullet train) and new Sado Kisen fast ferry services between Naoetsu & Ogi will make it even easier to visit the Ogi Peninsula, where Kodo is based on Sado Island.

The Special Performances, centered around Kodo's Distinguished Members, take place at Shukunegi Community Hall, a retro playhouse in the heart of the traditional village of Shukunegi. This picturesque settlement is classified as one of Japan's "important traditional building preservation areas."

We hope to see you there!
