Rain Show

Much of East Asia has a rainy season in the middle of summer. In Japan, this is usually in June and July. The Japanese summer monsoon, tsuyu or baiyu (梅雨 - plum rain), coincides with the plums ripening.

This is not the most suitable season for visiting Japan but some sights such as mountain scenery with hydrangea flowers, temples or hot springs can be very attractive.

Rain is very present in Japanese folklore and there are countless poems and songs that have rain as a theme.

On Sunday 27 June at 3pm SLT, our own Nakanoshima Okiya will be holding a rain-themed performance at the Hosoi Mura Theatre. Using musics, texts and scenic backdrops, dancing geisha will reveal the charm of the rainy season. If you want to join in the spirit - bring your rain gear!
