Event Hall / Public Hall

A 10 minute walk from Asakusa Station. The Asakusa France-za Engeijo Toyokan is a performing arts theater in Asakusa-koen Rokku. Known simply as the Toyokan, the theater is famous as the place where comedian, actor, and director Beat Takeshi got his start. Today, the theater primarily holds variety shows of manzai and mandan comedy, while its sister theater in the same building, the Asakusa Engei Hall, is used mainly for traditional rakugo comedic storytelling; together, they carry on a history of comedy culture in the Asakusa area. Performances are conducted 365 days a year, ensuring you can enjoy a performance any day the mood strikes you. An afternoon performance is held daily from 12:00 p.m.; consisting of 15 to 20 groups of performers and comedians, a new group is sure to come on before you ever get bored with the current one.

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
