Yachiyoza is a theater built by locals in 1910. The two-story wooden building resembles an Edo-style playhouse, featuring sajiki (gallery) seating, a revolving stage, and trapdoors located in the walkways. The auditorium has welcomed famous actors, such as Bando Tamasaburo V. Visitors will get a chance to explore backstage and view the mechanics of the theater. You will then be treated to a Yamaga lantern dance, which sees women perform with locally-made lanterns attached to their heads.
