Kamishibai began in the 1930’s.
The theatre is a small wooden box transported by bicycle.
It contains drawers of paper figures,different pictures that tell a story or are shown as a story is being told.
The story is unending always ending in a cliffhanger.
As well as telling the story the Kamishibai man also sold delicious homemade sweets. The story was a drawcard for people to come and buy the brightly coloured assorted sweets
