A Special YTN Showcase
An artist from Nagoya returns for a special workshop your whole family can enjoy! First sharing this tradition with YTN in 2018, Japanese “Kamishibai” (paper theatre) guides you through a simple yet entertaining form of traditional street performance. YTN is extending this rare opportunity to see Ta-chan with our greater community though public performances, community workshop, and a tour.
