A Circus is Coming to Town

In conjunction with this year’s Gokaicho at Zenkoji, and to commemorate the opening of new Chikuma Station on the local Shinano Railway line, the Kigure New Circus will be held in a tent near Chikuma Station from 20-March to 24-May.  Prices are 2700 yen for adults, 1500 yen for children, with discount tickets available in advance until 10-April.  Two to three shows daily (Thursdays off).


I’m not sure what a circus has to do with Zenkoji’s esteemed once-every-seven-years Gokaicho, but it sounds like it will be fun for kids.
