Toyooka Art Season

Izushi Eirakukan

ABOUT

Built in 1901, this is the oldest kabuki theatre in the Kansai region.
After being closed in 1964, the building was restored and reopened to the public in 2008.
With its reopening, tours began letting visitors see up close the features of the kabuki theatre. Visitors are taken behind the scenes on a guided tour, where they can see the main runway, the original production signs, below the stage and into the dressing rooms.
The theatre is still in use today, with performers of rakugo (storyteller performances), kabuki and others taking to the stage every year in this impressive theatre.

Open: 9.30-17.00
Closed: every Thursday

Izushi Soba

Izushi Soba

Izushi Soba

Izushi`s speciality dish is Izushi soba which are noodles made of buckwheat. They are eaten with the Japanese soup stock dashi. Daikon (radish), grated yam, wasabi (Japanese horseradish), spring onions and raw egg (optional) are added to the dashi to taste. The freshly made noodles are then dipped in this soup mixture and eaten. At the end of the meal, the remaining soup is mixed with sobayu (the hot water in which the noodles were boiled) and can be drunk as a sort of tea. Izushi soba is served on lots of small Izushi ceramic plates. Enjoy as many plates as you want and see who can get the biggest stack!
