    We took up the offer of complimentary tickets to this performance but would have readily bought them! The show was brilliantly choreographed, and being non verbal made no difference if we could speak Japanese or not! The action and fast paced fighting scenes were thrilling, and the wire work was amazing! Where elae but Tokyo can you see such a mix of contemporary dance, samurai, electro mecha terminator theatre??

    Exciting dance and sword fighting performance

    Saw the show a second time with some friends. Everyone had a great time! Play is a bit confusing, especially toward the end, but it was fun to discuss various interpretations over dinner after the show!

    Great Show

    The show was quite amazing. The story was good and the effects were great. I was breathtaking on some parts, but even so you couldn't look away. It was a bit hard to find, but worth it.

  • Christine Christine

    Absolutely grateful for these tickets! Best performance I have seen in Japan so far.

    Amazing experience and absolutely memorable. I grateful that I was able to attend such a jaw dropping performance. I want to go again! The music was beautiful, the actors were talented and the venue was impressive. I will remember this performance for the rest of my life! I am not kidding, I would watch this performance another three times!

    Fun show

    Thank you! This was a fun show with great dancing and sword fighting. Interesting lighting and set arrangements. Talented performers and funny in parts too! Music was mega loud though so be prepared for that! ;)

  • Giulia Giulia

    Fun vibrant performance

    Fun, moving, enticing performance! Great too see even if you don't understand Japanese since it's mostly not spoken (dance, performance). I'd recommend it

    Interesting stage performance

    Tickets were emailed promptly and easy to use at the venue. The elevator to the venue is a bit difficult to find, but we managed with the directions provided! Be sure to give yourself enough time to find the place.

    Prior to the show, there are a lot of opportunities to interact with the staff. There was a ninja doing magic tricks and some good photo opportunities with costumed characters.

    The dancing is quite good and there are a lot of sword fights to enjoy. The costumes are well done and the story is interesting to try and follow. I particularly enjoyed the scene where the samurai was being introduced to some of today's more modern conveniences. Very funny.

    Sometimes the story was a bit difficult to follow. It was easy to understand the general idea, but I do feel I missed some points. It would be helpful for the theater to provide a detailed program or summary of the show as there are some symbolisms that a non-Japanese audience may not understand. In particular, the fight at the end against the playing cards was a bit confusing.

    Overall a pleasant way to spend some time!

    Emotional and entertaining!

    Enjoyed the performance art and really fancied the interactive projections that made any surface to become life.
