Akan Ainu Theatre’s “Lost Kamuy”: Rediscover Ainu Tradition in a Multimedia Masterpiece – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

In the Akan Ainu Kotan (village) in Eastern Hokkaido, there is a permanent theater that pays tribute to the beauty of Ainu performance art. “Lost Kamuy”, which has been performed here since March 2019, runs from April to October. This vibrant piece is a celebration of Hokkaido’s indigenous Ainu people through a creative blend of traditional and modern dance accompanied by digital art and immersive audio. Centered on the now-extinct Ezo wolf, which was revered as an Ainu God, this unique combination of folklore and technology is a must-see!
