The annual Shimajiro English concerts from Benesse held in Lilia in Kawaguchi are set for June 25th this year. Apart from music they have quizzes and other activities in English. After the stage performance there is an opportunity to speak with English teachers in the foyer. They say that the concert is most suited to children aged 0 to 6 years old. Children under two aren’t charged if they sit on an adults lap, but you are only allowed one free child to one adult.
Times are 11 am, 1.30 pm and 4 pm. Tickets need to be bought in advance.
