Purchased tickets as I had heard it was wonderful. I was not disappointed by the amazing puppetry and theater, but no one warned me about the length of performance. The play I attended was 4 hours in total. While amazing it was honestly just too long. BUT, I'd still suggest you go. It is a national icon, and quite frankly an artistry you will NOT find anywhere else in the world. Insider Tip: Pay for the translator in your native language if you don't speak Japanese. It's worth every penny so you can follow the story.
