We are pleased to announce that the “Ji-Kabuki All-Star Performance”, which hads been temporarily postponedsuspended to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 , has fulfilled all the conditions stated in therequired for resumption.

There are more than 30 Ji-Kabuki preservation organizations in Gifu Prefecture and Gifu is one of the most active regions for Ji-Kabuki in Japan.
People in rural parts of the nation started organizing and holding Kabuki performances by themselves in their hometowns in shrines and shibai-goyas (playhouses). These amateur forms of Kabuki played in rural parts of Japan are called “Ji-Kabuki” in Gifu Prefecture.
There are 9 historical shibai-goyas (playhouses) and many  Ji-Kabuki preservation organizations in Gifu. The stories and dance routines from the Edo period (1603-1868) have been cherished and passed down from generation to generation.
This is a rare opportunity on which Ji-Kabuki preservation organizations in Gifu Prefecture all gather together and perform one after another.
Please come and watch the traditional performing arts that represent Gifu.
