Takarazuka

  
  

The Takarazuka Revue is one of the most popular entertainments in Japan.

The members are only unmarried females who graduated from their own Takarazuka musical school.

They are called “Takarazienne”.

There are 400 members, divided in 5 groups: Hana (flower), Tsuki (moon), Yuki (snow), Hoshi (star), and Sora (sky).

There are girls parts and male parts, and each group has a top star.

The show was started in 1914.

Every year about 1300 shows are held at Takarazuka theater in Hyogo and at their satellite theater in Tokyo.
