Hakata Traditional Performing Arts Centre
In November 2017, the "Hakata Traditional Performing Arts Centre" was launched as a new sightseeing spot to "touch" and "experience" Hakata's traditional culture in front of its guardian, the Kushida Shrine of Hakata. This facility also serves as the "Hakata Kenban Office/Rehearsal Hall."*1
*1 There are no routinely scheduled performances.
This facility holds performances about two or three times a month to express the charm of the traditional arts of Hakata, such as Japanese dance, folk dance, Hakata Koma, etc., to citizens and tourists.
After having enjoyed watching the performance by Hakata Geigi (geisha), the Fukuoka Folk Dancer "Shiki no kai, " Tsukushi-Mai, Hakata Koma, etc., there's time for a simple ozashiki experience, including question time and commemorative photos with the geigi.
