World Kamishibai Day in Tokyo, 2023


World Kamishibai Day, in Tokyo

The Fifth World KAMISHIBAI Day in Tokyo

This year's World KAMISHIBAI Day event in Tokyo was another success!
It was a full three hours of fun through kamishibai, some of the works performed in Chinese, French, Mongolian, Vietnamese, Farsi and English.
We had nearly 30 registrations on the day, and over 70 people registered online. People from Ireland, India, Germany, France, Malaysia, and some more countries shared the joy of kamishibai together. Thank you very much for your participation!
