Very traditional entertainment in a historic theater. The plays are changed often offering matinee seating and evening performances. Pre purchase tickets are only available for full performance but are also relatively expensive Y18000-14000, ( approx $160 -$125) non the less these performances sell out quickly...More

Matinee at 11:00, and you can buy a one act ticket for 1000 yen. Need to queue early (10:00) as there are 90 seats plus 60 standing. About an hour for one act. You can not get out of line, or save spaces for people...More

Kabuki theatre, I am told, is making a big come back in Kapan. The Kabukiza right near Hibiya station is a great old building. The basement information centre and small market is also worth a quick visit.

Very hard to describe without sounding overwhelmed. Words like marvellous, amazing, exciting, enthralling spring to mind. It is a strange, traditional, captivating place. Not so easy for a tourist to fully take it all in but still - incredible.

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

The single act cost 1000 yen (but I think this depends on the show) and the translator was 1000 yen. You can share the translator - it's the size of a mini Ipad.
