IHI Stage Around Tokyo
This is the second theater in the world that has the stage going around the audience and the first in Asia. The round audience seating is surrounded by the stage and screen and can also rotate 360 degrees, so it allows for a dynamic type of theater that has never been done before.
This new theater has more than 1,300 seats. It's right in front of the station so it's very accessible.
The first play in this theater is Gekidan Shinkansen's "Dokurojo no Shichinin" ("The 7 People of Skull Castle"), presented in 4 seasons: Hana (flower), Tori (bird), Kaze (wind), and Tsuki (moon).
