Great old theatre built in 1889 which continues to present performances from original times. The theatre performance isn't a must see but it is interestingly different and very dramatic. Worth seeing if you have time and can spare the expense and don't mind not understanding...More

A family that lives in Tokyo took us to this theater. You can purchase translators at the front. The play was very interesting and I loved all the costumes.

Have heard about kabuki and seen movies. Even though there’s no English, it’s worth seeing a piece of the show to appreciate the art. We saw a 12 minute piece for a modest sum. Definitely worth it if you have time.

I visited the Kabuki-za on a rainy weekday, and was able to get a single act ticket just 10 minutes before the third act. All single act seats are at the last two rows of the theatre, but I was able to see the main...More

The theatre is great and you can go for a single act because the whole play is pretty expensive. I went for a single act, you have to go 2-3 hrs earlier get a ticket and then go back to see the play. Great actors,...More

Attending a Kabuki performance was a highlight of my trip to Tokyo. Non-Japanese speakers can rent tablets to translate the dialogue and explain the plot. Being in the company of kimono-clad ladies enhances this experience, which is certainly not a “tourist event.” And, aside from...More

I feel like this is not advertised on their website BUT you can pay to see just one act of the show. The first act ticket sales start at 10:30, but I would arrive around 10 (earlier on weekends or busy holiday weeks). They have...More

Wow!!! The costumes are amazing!!! We were walking by thought we would see if we could get tickets all they had were standing only. The one act we chose was 24 minutes and it cost 600 yen. It was absolutely worth standing! Beautiful theater!

First of all, I enjoy musicals on the west end and broadway. However, I thought this production was quite simple and the storyline is not rich. Frankly I almost fell asleep at some points and I noticed people around yawning etc. No offense, just my...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
