The Kabukiza is a famous Kabuki theater in Ginza district at the heart of Tokyo. Kabuki is a form of traditional Japanese theater where tales of feudal lords, samurai warriors and divinities are told. The Kabukiza was fully renovated recently and feels brand new, although the traditional look of a Kabuki theater has been well-preserved.
We were able to get our tickets at the Kabukiza a day before the representation. Before the show, we bought some Bento (Japanese boxed lunch) which are commonly eaten in between representations. You can eat in your own seat in this theater.
I was very surprised during the Kabuki performance: some spectators among us were shouting during the play. Apparently it is a normal thing in the fascinating world of Kabuki. Those people are actually devoted Kabuki fans who know the plays by heart. What they say actually complements the play of the actors and contributes to the overall atmosphere. I highly recommend you to witness it for yourself!
