If you want to see “Kabuki”, this is the best place!

“Kabuki-za” was built in October 21, 1889 and has become part of Japanese traditional culture. It is said that “Kabuki” originated from people who imitated and disguised themselves in the most fashionable and unique styles. Adopting fashion regardless of existing concepts and entertaining people is the spirit of Kabuki which has been passed down through the generations.

Kabuki is a fusion of arts

Even among Japanese people, there may not be many who understand what “Kabuki” actually is. To begin with, Kabuki was a combination of “acting”, “dancing” and “music”. It was formed to entertain people using these three elements. As a result of absorbing interesting techniques and ideas while exercising ingenious ways of entertaining people many times over, the current “Kabuki” as we know it came to exist.
