Why do not you try Japan Street as your stage?
日本大通り×パフォーマー マグカル開放区 in 日本大通り

Every Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm, the main avenue in front of the prefectural government has become a pedestrian heaven. On days not used for events and occasions, we will create a space where you can freely publish performances such as music, dance, street performances, etc. as "Magar open area." Please do show off your performance in "Magar open area"!

What is Japan Avenue?
Japan Boulevard is Japan's first Western style street designed by Meiji 4 (1871) by RH Blanton and completed by 1877 by Meiji 10. It is also becoming a public registration facility of the country's registered monuments (scenic spots) and the city landscape, and its landscape with gingko lined trees attracts many visitors.

The tower representing Yokohama, "King" of Kanagawa Prefectural Government Office, "Queen" of Yokohama Customs, "Jack" at Yokohama City Open Port Memorial Hall. Early in the Showa era in which there were no tall buildings, seafarers of foreign ships called these towers seen from Yokohama Port with their familiarity, praying for the safety of navigation to this tower, said that they entered this tower as a landmark . There is also a legend that wishes will come true if you spoil the spot where you can overlook the three towers nowadays for those old people. Every March 10th is "Three towers day", and various events are held at that time.
