The first “Cruising Immersive Theater” -The Wind Returns to The Sea-

The first “Cruising Immersive Theater” -The Wind Returns to The Sea-

The first “Cruising Immersive Theater” in Japan named “-The Wind Returns to The Sea- “will be deployed in the waterfront spaces of Yokohama including “Yoshida Shinden” which laid the foundation for the prosperous Yokohama today.

Please enjoy the history and the culture of the city of Yokohama over the first cruising immersive theater experience in Japan. You will cruise along the Ooka River and the Nakamura River, and you will relive the history of Yokohama.

It is produced by Dance Company DAZZLE, the pioneer of immersive theater in Japan, who has successful track records for both large-scale and permanent performances.

The land you see at the center of the city of Yokohama was once a part of the sea.

The wind crossing over the river tells a story that must not be forgotten.

In Edo period,
The reclamation work commanded by a person named Kanbei was confronting extreme hardship and was often hindered by river flooding by heavy rains.

There seemed to be no way out, and he was at a loss.
Then, a woman stood up to say.

“It has been said for many years that human sacrifice will bring divine protection and can settle the roaring river.”

The name of the woman was Osan.
