Built in 1916 by local volunteers to celebrate the accession of Emperor Taisho to the throne, Uchikoza is a playhouse with a rich history spanning more than 100 years. It is characterized by its two-story wooden building with a tile-roofed gabled roof, and at that time, Kabuki, puppet shows, and movies were performed here, making it a popular place for local people to enjoy performances.
In recent years, the building was considered for demolition due to its aging, but local residents asked for renovation. The restoration work was completed in 1985. The theater features the best of the architectural techniques of the time in its hanamichi (flower aisle), revolving stage, dressing room, square seats, etc. In addition to the audience seats, visitors can see the backstage and nara (under the stage floor), which are not usually seen in theaters.
