The collection consists of items that will enhance your daily comfort. These are the basic items which sets apart from our seasonal collection and are meant to be enjoyed inside the house.

    HIN | An Encouragement of Bunraku

    HIN Arts & Science, Nijodori Kyoto announces the upcoming exhibition, “An Encouragement of Bunraku”. This exhibition was made possible when Sonya Park initiated a celebration to commemorate the succession of Toyotake Sakihodayu, her friend for over 15 years and the narrator of Ningyo Joruri Bunraku (a traditional theatrical art featuring puppets) as the 6th Takemoto Oritayu. From Tayu’s personal belongings to puppeteer costumes and props, the exhibition showcases rare objects which are often closed to the public. With respect to Oritayu’s profound knowledge toward crafts and products, the exhibition also features Oritayu’s kubarimono, his novelty collection. It will be an exceptional opportunity to experience the traditional art which is so unique to Japan. Arts & Science is pleased to share the charm of Bunraku and we look forward to your visit.

    A book signing event will take place to celebrate the launch of the 6th Oritayu’s published work, Bunraku no Susume -An Encouragement of Bunraku- (Jitsugyo no Nihon Sha). More detail to follow on our website and SNS.

    PROFILE
    Takemoto Oritayu / Borin in Nishi Shinsaibashi, Osaka in 1975. Takemoto Oritayu was born to a family where he has the 2nd Tsuruzawa Dohachi, the Bunraku shamisen player as his grandfather, Tsuruzawa Seiji as his uncle and Tsuruzawa Seiki as his younger brother. While appearing in “Nihongo de asobo (Let’s play with Japanese)”, an educational children’s TV program on NHK E-TELE, Oritayu plays an important role in promoting the charm of Bunraku. He is also the winner of the 28th Sakuya Konohana Prize (2011), the 34th Matsuo Geino Shinjin Award (2013) and Osaka Bunkasai Grand Prix (2013).
    NOTE
    In Bunraku, the narrator (tayu), the shamisen (a three stringed Japanese lute) player and the puppeteer form a triad to create a theatrical art. Bunraku’s origin can be dated back to the early Edo period (early 17th to mid 19th century). It is a traditional and comprehensive art where austere and complex stories are exquisitely presented through various elements such as buoyant, humorous and ravishing dances. It is also listed among UNESCO’s “List of the World’s Intangible Cultural Heritages”.
