YOKOSUKA ARTS THEATRE

The Yokosuka Arts Theater was established in February 1994 on the site of the EM Club (U.S. Navy personnel club), the birthplace of postwar Japanese jazz, as a place to connect people and culture to enrich the lives of Yokosuka citizens. We are now open. The EM Club was the birthplace of jazz in postwar Japan, and world-famous entertainers such as Louis Armstrong often came to perform there right after the war ended. In addition, musicians who would later represent Japan, such as George Kawaguchi and Nobuo Hara, gave passionate performances, disseminating authentic American music to the nation.

It consists of two different theaters: a large theater (Yokosuka Arts Theater) and a small theater (Yokosuka Bayside Pocket). As a symbol of Yokosuka, it is a hub of artistic culture and bustle.
