The Little Mochi Man

  • A Thousand Cranes
The Little Mochi Man
Fantasic For Families

It’s almost New Year and little Mochi Man, tired of being bullied because of his small size, decides to run away.

Join him on his adventures as he travels from the snowy mountains of Hokkaido, to the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, meeting many wondrous creatures and characters along the way, including The Gingerbread Man and a very fast bullet train!

What dangers lurk around the corner? Will he make friends, and will he make it back home in time for the celebrations?

Mixing modern with traditional Japanese forms of story-telling and inspired by the traditions of Shogatsu (Japanese New Year celebrations) A Thousand Cranes brings a brand new piece of inventive theatre for young audiences; thought-provoking, funny and just a bit different.

  • Theatre

with ‘origami’ puppets, animation and specially composed music, this is the perfect introduction to Japan for young children.
