See, eat, touch and experience the culture of the hometown of an old folk house!

古民家のふるさとの文化を、観て、食べて、触れて体験!

An event will be held to convey the culture of the old folk house's hometown!
~ What I want to keep telling ~ A gift from my hometown

Kawasaki Municipal Japanese Folk House Garden, which spreads out in a corner of Ikuta Ryokuchi, is a green museum with a total of 25 old folk houses, including 7 nationally designated important cultural properties, on a spacious site of about 30,000 square meters. .. It's strange that an old folk house with a thatched roof is nostalgic for the first time, and it makes me feel at ease.

In a space surrounded by such old folk houses, an exciting event like spring will be held!
The theme areas are Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture, Koshu City, Yamanashi Prefecture, and Shiwa Town, Shiwa District, Iwate Prefecture, where old folk houses are exhibited in the park. There will be folk performing arts performances and product sales that are handed down in various places, so why not go out for a walk?
The "Old Funakoshi Stage," which is the venue for folk performing arts performances in the three regions, was built in 1857 in the late Edo period, and is a valuable building designated as an important tangible folk cultural property of the country. A magnificent one equipped with the necessary equipment for Kabuki plays, such as a revolving stage with a diameter of three rooms (5.4 m) and a Hanamichi with a soft-shelled turtle. When you sit on a bench and watch the folk performing arts on the stage, you will feel like you've slipped in the Edo period.
Food and drinks will be sold on the day, so you can enjoy the stage while eating and drinking like an old playhouse.

During the exhibition, wine lectures, lacquer brooch making experience, and indigo dyeing experience for foreigners will be held. Enjoy a relaxing day with your family and friends.
* Admission fee is exempted for those who watch entertainment performances and those who participate in lectures / experiences about this event. When you enter the park, please let us know that you will participate.

Shinjo Folk Performing Arts Musical Music (Kawasaki City Important Customs Technique Designation) * Kawasaki City
At the beginning of the Meiji era, young people who were proud of their strength and skill competed for strength using stones, mortars, bales and sake barrels during farm work. As the times have changed, it has evolved into a song holder that uses stepladders and boxes. On the other hand, the musical accompaniment is said to have started with the Kamakura musical accompaniment, which was started when Minamoto no Yoritomo became a shogun. The world where the musicians and the musical accompaniment unfold together is throbbing and harassing even in a lively atmosphere. Please enjoy the spectacular world selected as one of the 50 best folk performing arts in Kanagawa prefecture.
