In February 1994, the Yokosuka Arts Theater was the site of the EM Club (US Navy Staff Club), the birthplace of postwar Japanese jazz, as a place to connect people and culture that enrich the lives of Yokosuka citizens. It has opened. The EM club was the birthplace of jazz in Japan after the war, and immediately after the end of the war, world-famous entertainers such as Louis Armstrong often visited to perform. In addition, musicians representing Japan in later years, such as George Kawaguchi and Nobuo Hara, performed hot performances, transmitting authentic American scented music nationwide. It consists of a theater with two different faces, a large theater (Yokosuka Arts Theater) and a small theater (Yokosuka Bayside Pocket). Since its opening, it has performed numerous performances such as leading domestic and foreign opera, ballet, and classical music. As a symbol of Yokosuka, it is a base for <art culture and liveliness>.
