Le Théâtre National de Bunraku (国立文楽劇場, Kokuritsu bunraku gekijō) est un ensemble de deux salles de spectacle et une salle d’exposition. Il est situé dans le quartier Chūō-ku d’Osaka. La structure a été inaugurée en 1984 et constitue le quatrième théâtre national du pays. Elle est l’organe central du bunraku et gérée par le Japan Arts Council (日本芸術文化振興会, Nihon geijutsu bunka shinkōkai, littéralement « association de promotion de la culture et des arts japonais »), une institution administrative indépendante rattachée au ministère de l'Éducation, de la Culture, des Sports, des Sciences et de la Technologie. Le Théâtre bénéficie aussi de subsides de la ville d’Osaka.

Absolutely a must do in Osaka. We saw the 11.00 show and it was a fantastic experience. The puppetry and music are outstanding. Definitely get the English headphones for narration, they also include general details and history of bunraku.

Japanese culture is brought to life in theatres like these. Puppets play out stories that were written by the best in Japan. The plays are long and serious and wonderful. The foyer has many little shops from where you can purchase Bento boxs to eat in the intervals of long plays. An essential experience for those wanting to dive into Japanese culture.

It was a lot of fun but can be frustrating to get tickets. You have to be there to buy them and they seem to sell out quickly even on slow days. I'd also strongly recommend getting a translator if you don't speak Japanese.

What a theatre! Staff is friendly and the shows are amazing. As a tourist I've been to one of the final Bunraku acts, which was quite the experience. Definitely recommended for tourists in Osaka!

You can get a one session ticket on the day for about 1000¥. This is a good opportunity if you are curious about the genre. I found the audioguide didn't provide translations of the dialogue, only the narration. It was therefore less engaging as a lot of the Japanese content was unavailable. I wouldn't recommend this if you don't understand Japanese.

I've seen about a dozen shows here (some bunraku, some gagaku and one kabuki performance) and all of them were topnotch.
