To commemorate the second anniversary of the May 22, 2012 opening of Tokyo Skytree, the leading kabuki actors Nakamura Shichinosuke and Onoe Matsuya last Saturday performed the popular dance-based piece “Dango-Uri” (“The Dumpling Sellers”) on an outdoor stage in the Sky Arena at the tower’s base.

The 25-minute show — which followed a stirring set from Musashi, an ensemble of two shamisen players and a taiko drummer — was part of a weekend of special events held at the 634-meter tower, which is Japan’s tallest structure.
