Experience the thrill of authentic Tsugaru shamisen performances
Located in Kanagi-machi, the birthplace of Tsugaru shamisen, this facility showcases the history of Tsugaru shamisen and local performing arts. In addition to an exhibition room introducing the origins and history of Tsugaru shamisen, Tsugaru folk songs, and local performing arts, the facility also has a concert hall and outdoor stage for performances.
Live Tsugaru shamisen performances are held several times a day in the concert hall. You can experience the thrill of listening to authentic performances by Tsugaru shamisen players born and raised right here in the Tsugaru region. The facility also features many other highlights, including an area where visitors can enjoy the sounds of various Japanese shamisen instruments and string instruments from around the world.
Tsugaru Shamisen Hall is located only a short distance from the Osamu Dazai Memorial Museum "Shayokan," and a two-site pass is recommended to visit both facilities.
