I watched Kabuki, "July at the Kabikiza Theater," with my wife. We got our seats very close to the flower way and could watch Ebizo (Ichikawa) and his four-year son, Kangen (Horikoshi - He is much smaller on the stage than I thought.) in a...More

Kabuki is one of the easy-to-understanding Japanese traditional performances for travelers. Its story is not special and made based on what was going on in the past in Japan. The reason is that it was for normal people but for high class even for the...More

I was somewhat surprised how compelling I found the performance at Kabuki-za. I booked tickets for the entire three-act show (as opposed to purchasing the available one-act tickets on the day of performance), and I was thankful I did. I enjoyed every minute. If you...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

You have to pay them at the box office, sales normally start 1-2 hours before the show. The tickets are typically for stall seats - not too bad. Suggest checking out show you hope to catch and going early to get the tickets... More
