■ Daiji Meguro / Ebisu Daikokuza profile
Established in 2016 as a touring company, since then choreographer Daiji Meguro has taken “Ebisu Daikokuza” on the road in various regions. His performances are ones which blend traditional Japanese performing arts with western popular culture. His major works include a repertoire such as a “wholesome sexy show" called “The Nature of Roses”, a "Yokai Show" which may be enjoyed by anyone regardless of age or gender, and the “Ebisu Daikoku Show” which was inspired by traditional preemptive blessing rituals to Ebisu (the god of fishing and commerce), as well as the Daikoku dance.
