  • Didn't expect to see such a show! I don't like clowns and reporting animal cruelty honestly. So you know, there will not be. The show not only for children but also for adults. Heart skip a beat with fear for artists performing incredible tricks! This evening, my understanding of the boundaries of human capability has changed dramatically! (Walked in Monday, people were a little, the show begins promptly at 7.30, 2 offices for about 45-50 minutes, fare varies from 150 to 700 Yuan, there is the possibility of change for good places)

  • Cheap tickets (about 2,800 yen) was booked in Japan. Day five minutes late, but the person in charge and was guided to the seat. 8 percent of seats was buried. It would tend to group tours in Europe and China.  In all kinds of shows I enjoyed raising. Life is a circus, seen for the first time with superhuman skills at all very helpful.  Front & is very happy but to be honest there are skills you want to see in the near from all equally so! It is better because there is no heat winter went on clothes. The summer is hot...?

  • Location is not accurate
  • Expect more than a circus. Brilliant stage configurations and stylish. A higher level of permanent venues featuring circus performers

  • One of the best circuses in the world. There are no animals, but there are magnificent acrobats and jugglers, show motorcyclists in a steel ball. You can book tickets online, which will save your time.
