Monkey Showman Theater (阿蘇猿まわし劇場)

4.0

Theater

"The world's only theater dedicated to ""saru mawashi,"" a type of monkey show with a long history in Japan. The theater can accommodate 600 people and holds funny and heartwarming shows 365 days a year. Performances include handstands, walking on stilts, and even bicycle riding. The cuteness of the monkeys bring smiles to the faces of the audience and draws viewers into the performance before they know it. The theater is situated in a naturally beautiful area at the foot of Mt. Aso and inside visitors can enjoy the light banter between the monkeys and their trainers. Another great thing about the theater is that it offers subtitled translations in three languages and the theater fully incorporates universal design principles. The large theater grounds also encompass a monkey zoo where visitors can interact with monkeys, a shop selling original merchandise, and a self-service diner."

ホテルのプランで入場券が付いていたので、行ってみました。
日曜でしたがそれほど観客は多くなく、一番前の席で見ました。

猿が可愛くて、子どもも喜んで見ていました。
すごくちゃんと芸を仕込まれていて、思った以上にクオリティが高かったです。

会社のイベントで行きました。想像を遥かに超えるクオリティで、人間らしい所作一つ一つが素晴らしいです。
Reviewed:2018/10/12 子どもはもちろん大人でも充分楽しめます
猿と人間のコンビネーションの良さや猿の抜群の身体能力を間近で感じることができ感動しました。猿と人間のやり取りも面白く、大人にもぜひ足を運んでもらいたい場所です。

          Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
