Opened in 2012, this is Japan's first theatre specializing in Ainu culture. While indoors, this theatre implements the elements of fire and water which are indispensable in Ainu culture, creating unforgettable performances! Of these, the "traditional Ainu dance" has been designated as a UNESCO intangible cultural heritage. These songs and dances, born of the Ainu people's' lifestyle of coexisting with nature, are definitely worth seeing.
