The Takarazuka Revue Company was established by the founder of Hankyu Railway, Ichizo Kobayashi. Ever since the first performance in 1914, the all-female musical theatre troupe has performed everything from classical to modern plays involving singing, dancing, and acting in both male and female roles. Five young male-role members who joined after 2014—the 100th anniversary of the troupe—will be serving as Ambassadors.

We are very honored to serve the important role of Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan Ambassadors. The Takarazuka Revue was involved in the 1970 Osaka Expo, too: some of our directors served as producers of the opening ceremony, and our predecessors who were active at the time participated in some of the events. We will do our utmost to help bring more brilliance and excitement to the Expo like our predecessors did 55 years ago, as well as help people from all over the world learn about the amazing culture of not only Takarazuka but also Kansai and Japan as a whole.
