When you think of Japanese theater, you also think of kabuki: demonic-looking masks, elegant kimonos and drums. Often stories are told of old warriors or longing lovers. The beautiful hand-made costumes, the enchanting stage design and the musical background make a journey unforgettable in Kabuki-za.
The Kabuki-za in Ginza is Tokyo's premier kabuki theater. The theater was originally built in 1889 by a Meiji-era journalist Fukuchi Gen'ichiro. Fukuchi wrote kabuki plays and kyogen, another form of traditional Japanese theater, for Ichikawa Danjuro IX and others in which he starred. However, after Danjuro IX's death, Fukuchi retired from the theater. Destroyed by several disasters, the building was rebuilt a total of 4 times.
If a whole Kabuki piece is too long (a piece can take over 4 hours) or too expensive, there is also the option of purchasing tickets for individual acts. For certain pieces, you can also purchase a G-marc guide on site, which translates what is spoken into English so that you can better understand what is happening on stage.
Hibiya Line or Asakusa Line, "Higashi Ginza" Station. Exit 3- direct access to the theatre from the subway station.
