Built in 1934 with a modern Western-style exterior, it is a genuine theatrical hut equipped with a revolving stage and a naraku. It was popular for kabuki and noh-kabuki performances. It was restored in 1999 as a filming location for director Yoji Yamada’s “The Man Who Grasps the Rainbow” and is now a venue for theatrical performances and movie screenings, as well as a place for citizens to showcase their entertainment culture.
Rakugo performances are held every year by Sanpei Hayashiya, a Mima City Tourism Ambassador.
