Summer Program of Bunraku for adults and accompanying children “Kaminari Daiko” Now Streaming Online for Free!

Bringing entertainment into home! The Council has been presenting various videos of traditional Bunraku masterpieces on the National Theatre official YouTube channel; and a new video of the performance at National Bunraku Theatre: “Kaminari Daiko” - which was performed last summer and earned great responses - is now uploaded on the channel for a limited time until August 31 (Mon), 2020. It is an entertaining content for small children as well, so the whole family can enjoy.

One hot day in summer just before the Tenjin Matsuri Festival, Tora-chan, the only son of a drum craftsman, is playing naked. The mother tells him to hurry up and put on a yukata (casual summer kimono). The father also exhorts him to do so, but the father himself is nearly naked in a loincloth. As the mother scolds them out loud, Torokichi, the thunder gets startled by the boisterous sound and precipitates into the family’s house. Torokichi with lack of drum techniques, hones his skills through practices with the father, the drum craftsman. Is Torokichi able to make it back up to the heavens and perform at the drum concert?
