    Tokushima Pref. Mimashi Wakimachinoshiri Nishibun 140-1
    This theater featuring a Western-style modern appearance, located in Wakimachi, Mima City, Tokushima Prefecture, was built in 1934. Originally the theater was used as a full-scale playhouse showing Kabuki performances and Rokyoku recitations (stories accompanied by the shamisen). After the war it was used as a movie theater and as a stage for singing performances. Deterioration caused by age forced the theater to close in 1995. However, the theater sparked interest when it was used as a set location for a movie directed by Yoji Yamada which lead to it being designated a cultural property of the town and was restored to the condition of the early Showa period. It also has a revolving stage as well as a basement and is now open to the public as a tourist attraction.
