It has performed every Saturday, Sunday, and holiday in the little nostalgic theater “Puppet Theatre PUK” near Shinjuku station, Tokyo since 1971.

The theater invites many different traditional puppet groups in Japan and contributes to the inheritance and development of the tradition and also cultural exchanges with international puppet artists. Since 1958, it has been a member of Union Internationale De La Marionnette (UNIMA) and has participated in many international festivals and conferences. Recently, it actively performs for films and tv shows too.

In the 1920s when it was just established, there were various peace movements with the end of the World War I. Its name “PUK” is after a constructed international auxiliary language “Esperanto” by L. L. Zamenhof who believed “a linguistic difference interrupts communication and that brings wars.” Puppet Theatre PUK continues to be creative for happiness for everyone and world peace.
