Kanagawa Arts Theater
5 minutes walk from Nihonodori Station on the Minatomirai Line. This is a theater dedicated to performing arts, which is known as "KAAT", and which represents Kanagawa prefecture. As soon as you enter the hall, the entrance to this atrium opens up in front of you.
An escalator was set up around this 30-meter-high entrance to the colonnade, and ascends to the 5th floor main lobby.

This is the main lobby on the 5th floor. The large glass windows are covered with white cloth, but it seems that this lace-like pattern was created in the image of a cocoon from Yokohama, a city that flourished in the silk trade. As the sun shines in more, you can enjoy the beautiful shadow installation that is projected on the floor and walls. Unfortunately it was cloudy on the day of infiltration...
And the floor of the lobby should be devised!
As with the glass windows, the carpet also has lines that resemble cocoons, but if you look closely you can see that the ventilation openings are installed. Since it takes time to experience the set temperature, I dare to put the air conditioning outlet down. With this, the summer is cool and the winter is warm, so you can welcome visitors to the theater at a comfortable temperature.
Now, let's go further inside. This time, I will take a look at the hall that will be the main venue of "KAAT". On the day of the performance, show the ticket in the lobby and go inside. On the way to the hall, there is a cloakroom, which is indispensable for the theater, so you can leave your luggage, winter coat, etc. here temporarily.
Apart from the cloakroom, coin lockers are also available. It costs 100 yen each time, but 100 yen will be returned properly after using the coin back type. I'm glad.
If you arrive early, you can read the pamphlets of the performance carefully, chat, watch people, and so on. Those who head to the theater in a hurry after work will definitely be able to spend a relaxing and comfortable time. Relax here until the start.
Just in case I checked the toilet too!
It is a very stylish space that uses KAAT's image color, black and red. The plate on the door is designed so that you can tell at a glance whether it is in use or not. The sign of worry for such customers is also designed neatly.
This is the end of this time, as we have completed a must-have toilet check for a long performance. Next time, I will sneak into the main hall!
A facility dedicated to performing arts such as theater, musicals, and dance. Akira Shirai, an actor and director, is invited as an art director to create and transmit excellent performing art works such as theater, musicals, and dance.
