Our international students and Japanese students went on a field trip to the Takarazuka Grand Theater to see the revues "The Tale of Genji" and "Melodia." Everyone enjoyed the brilliant and amazing shows with a mixture of traditional and modern dance and singing. This was despite the students’ challenges in following the old story. The all-female Takarazuka Revue was founded by Ichizo Kobayashi in Takarazuka on April 1, 1914. Even today, the revue is popular for its beautiful and gorgeous stage performances.
