When you are in Japan, you should experience a modern Japanese entertainment show! FUERZA BRUTA WA! is a 70-minute non-verbal neo-Japanesque entertainment performed in Shinagawa, Tokyo.

“Fuerza Bruta” has been performed in over 60 cities across 30 countries in the world already and this “Fuerza Bruta WA!” is a new show inspired by Japan. It’s not a concert, nor a play, nor a musical.

I spent a Friday night to participate in the exciting show!

There are coin lockers, and I strongly recommend to put your stuff in the lockers. There are also money changers if you need 100 yen coins.

You can also buy original goods and drinks. Their T-shirts were pretty cute. If you wish to get wet from the show (!) purchase one of the T-shirts and get ready!

70-minutes non-stop from the start to the end

When it’s the right time, you will get to go inside. The atmosphere became totally Japanese from here.

As soon as the stage appeared with a surprising performance, 70 minutes just flew by.

Music such as traditional Japanese drums (Taiko) performance, dances, Samurai fighting performance, etc., never made audiences bored.

The performance allows you to enjoy from 360-degree directions, and you will be asked to move around!

Performers come close to you and dances with you, screams with you! Jump and dance with the word “WA!” with everyone. (A little tip: you will get wetter in the center!)

You get very close to the performers.

You can take photos and share them from start to the end in FUERZA BRUTA WA! Most of the audiences are taking pictures, and there were so many photogenic moments that you can not resist taking pictures.

The new entertainment show inspired by Japan but arranged in a modern way was really interesting for me as a local Japanese. I was impressed how they entertained us in a non-verval way for the whole time, too. And I found audiences from abroad!

They came from various European countries such as Sweden. Told me that especially the Taiko performance was amazing!

The show of current version will end on December 10th, but it will become a new show called “WA!!” (with two exclamation marks!) from December 14th as a long run show.
