Japan Then and Now showcases the sights, sounds and tastes of the ancient and modern day capital cities of Japan, Kyoto and Tokyo. Drawing from the cuisines of Kyoto and Tokyo and new to the menu this year is the bento that has been created specifically for Folklorama patrons. Chef Ono’s popular niku-don (beef on rice), matsuri dogs, miso soup, and sushi are back. Sample from our selection of Japanese beer and sake or share a Mt Fuji sized kakigori (shaved ice) while enjoying one of our three nightly shows featuring traditional and modern performances by our fabulous local artists. Be sure to come early and catch our daily pre-show martial arts demonstrations before the main show begins! Pre-show demonstrations are at 6:25, 7:55, and 9:25, and a reminder that we are a cash only pavilion.
