Join Za Daikon for a theatre performance in Japanese with English subtitles.

Once upon a time, in a small village, there lived an elderly woman. Her husband had recently passed away, and she was very lonely. She worshipped his memorial tablet every day. One day, a traveling monk came to her seeking a place to stay for the night. She offered him a delicious meal, thinking that he would give her husband a merciful sutra. And the monk did give a sutra….

Established in 1994, Za Daikon, an amateur Japanese theatrical group, has been producing and performing plays and stage readings in Japanese annually at the Powell Street Festival, other community events, Japanese language schools, and at senior care facilities. Plays have been presented with English subtitles and voice-over description where possible.
