The Kabukiza theater is over 100 years old, and is one of the most emblematic theaters of Japan. The architecture reflects the high standing of the theater. Kabuki plays change every month, with two shows daily; one in the afternoon and one in the evening. A show lasts about four and a half hours, but you can also buy a ticket for one act only, which lasts about one hour (approx. 1000 yen). There are rental earphones available with an explanation in English of the action on stage.

  • Kabuki is something you have to experience at least once... or only once. The graceful moves of the kabuki actor and the timely manner of the drum beats are indescribable by words alone. There are 7 to 8 acts available each day and at least one of them will be a dance (no worries about language barrier!).

  • Kabuki-za is a must see feature of Ginza. It's historical and it's architecturally stunning. If you go during the afternoon, you can see one act of a play. This is a great way to get a feel for Kabuki. You probably won't want much more than a feel. A one play ticket gets you a seat in the fourth teer of the theater, impossibly far from the actors. I had a hard time following the play, even with th... Read More

  • Kabuki-za, as you might expect, is an old theatre showing kabuki plays first built in 1889. It's unmistakable - a brightly-colored building completely contrasting with its modern surroundings, dwarfed by neighboring buildings but still imposing when you walk by. Tickets are fairly easy to get, depending on the show. Tickets range from 2,500 yen to 17,000 yen for box seats. They should be purchased... Read More
