The National Bunraku(Puppet) Theater

 The puppet theater was founded in Osaka about 140 years ago by Bunrakuken Uemura  and soon became very popular. Finally, his name “Bunraku” became the name used and associated with traditional Joruri puppet theater, in which three puppeteers work a single puppet to create complicated but delicate movements and express a wide range of emotions. This theater is recognized on the UNESCO World Intangible Cultural Heritage List.
