Hey everyone! It's Chippy from J Hoppers Hiroshima.

As you guys all know, one of the best ways to spend your days off, is going to Circus!

From the 2nd of July to the 25th of September, Japan's most popular circus "KINOSHITA CIRCUS" plays their show in Hiroshima.

They are originally from Okayama prefecture which is next to Hiroshima, and it's been five years since they last played in the city. Founded in 1902, their long history reaches 114 years this year.

I went to see the show last Monday (the 11th of July), and that was super amazing!
Their show not only includes the great animal & human performance, but also has a strong narrative aspect. It contains the expression of Japanese culture everywhere too.

I got the cheapest seat for 2,800yen, but it was totally fine as the performing tent is not that big. If you want to see them from the front, I suggest you pay a bit more and get the best spot!

KINOSHITA CIRCUS is not only for kids! Everyone, from child to adult, can enjoy their overwhelming performance.
