Internationally renowed performance group Shiro A is back with a vengeance for its latest show in Asakusa. At ¥1,200 for a 30-minute show, fast and bite-sized is the name of the game – think fast food or fast fashion but in performing art form. There are five or six performances per day, so even if you're just sightseeing or shopping in the area, you'll have the chance to pop in. The show itself is a bewildering mix of tap dancing in geta sandals, Buddhist instruments, kanji memorisation tricks and much more; it's traditional Japan meets high-tech, depicted through dance, acrobatics and comedy. Staff speak fluent English, so it's a good pick for those of you visiting Tokyo.
