  • The brain-child of Kobayashi Ichizou, who wanted to share and spread Japanese culture, this tour took advantage of the new Axis Powers treaty. They set off from Kobe Harbor on the steamship the Yasukuni-maru. Officially called the “Japan, Germany, and Italy Goodwill Delegation” (日独伊親善使節団), their ship sailed on October 2nd, 1938. They stopped in occupied China on the way to perform for the Japanese troops there.
  • They traveled by train throughout Europe and later their first-hand accounts told of how grim Europe had become. They also witnessed Kristallnacht, where a synagogue across from the theater they were rehearsing in was burned.
