Thank you to everyone who attended on November 22nd, right in the midst of Kyoto's tourist season. We appreciate your presence. We were able to welcome a total of 107 attendees, including adults and children, across all sessions. We sincerely thank you for your feedback, and we'd like to share some of the comments from the surveys we received.

- "The voices in 'Hoshi' were very soft, warm, and heartwarming. It was a story that resonated deeply in my heart. The songs were perfectly suited for this story, cute and the music was also precise and wonderful. I'm glad I got to listen to it."

- "Ah, so the director of the planetarium in 'The Aoki I Fell in Love With' was Mr. Aoki. The differentiation between his younger self and his current self was wonderful. Ms. Kozue portrayed a slightly strong-willed yet adorable wife perfectly, and as always, it was moving. Reading plays stimulate the imagination and are enjoyable, like giving your brain a massage. I'd love to see it again!" (Female/ Hoshi・The Aoki I Fell in Love With)

- "The music in 'Hoshi' matched so well that it made me tear up, like twisting a baby's hand. I'm supposed to be a human who doesn't understand basic emotions, but Yuriiika managed to do it. It must be the magic of her sense (words, music, casting, etc)."

- "'Haruko' is a classic. It's wonderful. No matter how many times I see it." (Male/ All performances)

- "It was a very good story. (Female/ Haruko・Hoshi)

- "It was a really good story. When I closed my eyes, the scenes came to mind vividly, like watching a movie. It reminded me of when my daughter was born, and tears welled up. The sound effects were lovely. 'Hoshi' had a very beautiful voice. It felt like reading a picture book. I was very moved." (Female/ Haruko・Hoshi)

- "As a small-scale performance, it was a well-planned and high-quality event supported by a strong sense of aesthetics. The balance of color, music, and space elements was very good for this scale." (Male/ Haruko・Hoshi)

- "I was very moved. I was moved by Haruko and Sato-san's deep love. The singing was wonderful. I was moved." (Young girl/ Haruko・Hoshi)

- "I saw it for the first time. I'll come again." (Anonymous/ Hoshi)

- "It was a wonderful theater production that both adults and children could enjoy. I thought the combination of recitation and singing was high-quality." (Anonymous/ Haruko・Hoshi)

- "It was a very heartwarming performance. After watching 'Haruko' and 'Hoshi,' although they had different atmospheres, one thing I felt was that I wanted to go home and see my family. It's the kind of feeling that makes me want to become a carefree mother like Haru-chan." (Female/ Haruko・Hoshi)

Thank you all for your cooperation in the survey!! We look forward to your continued support in the future!
