YOKOHAMA ART SPOT FILE

A place for people who love performing arts
KAAT
Kanagawa Arts Theater

About a 5-minute walk from Minatomirai Line Nihon Odori Station. This is a theater dedicated to performing arts that represents Kanagawa Prefecture, known as "KAAT". As soon as you enter the hall, you will see the entrance of this atrium in front of you.

An escalator is set up around the entrance of this 30-meter-high atrium, and as you climb up, you will arrive at the 5th floor main lobby.

This is the main lobby on the 5th floor. The large glass windows are covered with white cloth, but this lace-like pattern is said to have been created in the image of a "cocoon" from Yokohama, a city that prospered in the silk trade. When more sunlight shines in, you can enjoy the beautiful shadow installation projected on the floor and walls. Unfortunately it was cloudy on the day of the infiltration.

And the floor of the lobby is also devised!

Like the glass windows, the carpet has lines that resemble cocoons, but if you look closely, you can see that there are ventilation holes. The ceiling is high because of the atrium, and the air conditioning It takes time to experience the set temperature, so I dare to lower the air conditioning outlet. This means that the summers are cool and the winters are warm, so that guests who visit the theater can be welcomed at a comfortable temperature.

Now, let's infiltrate 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 your ticket in the lobby and go inside. On the way to the hall, there is a cloakroom that is indispensable for the theater, and people with a lot of luggage and winter coats can be temporarily stored here.

Apart from the cloakroom, a coin locker is also available. It costs 100 yen each time, but the coin-back type will return 100 yen after use. glad~.

And the time until the start is a calm space foyer with indirect lighting.

If you arrive early, you can read the pamphlet of the performance carefully, chat, and look at people. Even those who rush to the theater on their way home from work will definitely be able to spend a relaxing and comfortable time. Relax here until the performance starts.

I also checked the toilet just in case! Here it is!

It is a very stylish space using KAAT's image color of black and vermilion. 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 concern for such customers is also designed to look good.

I've already checked the toilet, which is a must for long performances, but this time it ends here. Next time, I will infiltrate the main hall!
