If there were no lockdown, I would have visited my mother in Osaka and gone to see Bunraku this month. Well, no theater is open in Japan now. I just received email from National Bunraku Theater that they have posted one of the most famous Bunraku performance “Kanatehon Chushingura” on YouTube. At least I can enjoy it on screen at home!
You may wonder that Bunraku is. Here are some of my previous posts, so that you learn or refresh your memory.
According to the website, this YouTube video is available throughout May. Please enjoy it before it expires. Tonight I have to let my mom know about this news. Surely she will be excited!
