Shinbashi Enbujo's most prominent show has been part of the programme here since the theatre first opened in 1925. Always happening around the time when spring gives way to early summer, it sees the venue transformed into an extra-large version of a traditional ryotei restaurant, with guests invited to munch on uber-fancy bento treats (provided by nearby ryotei) while being entertained by geisha. Ten performances take place over four days, with three shows on both Saturday and Sunday. The closest you'll get to the geisha is during intermission, when the performers are free to mingle, chat and snap selfies with the audience. If you're even the least interested in the traditional arts, you owe it to yourself to see this one.

Tickets are available from April 14 through the bilingual Ticket Web Shochiku site.
