La Pupa Klubo uses a range of puppets and puppetry techniques to captivate kids and adults alike. In this show, there are rod puppets, hand puppets, shadow puppets and traditional Japanese puppets. The brightly coloured sets, lively music and short show duration keep the children’s attention. The highlight? The puppeteers don’t hide their faces like the more traditional Bunraku but after a couple of minutes you won’t notice them as your attention is cleverly focused on the puppets and the wonderful story being woven before your very eyes. The show is in Japanese and English.
Transport By train: Shinjuku Station (Yamanote, Chuo, Marunouchi, Keio, Odakyu, Oedo, Shinjuku lines), south exit
