Theater

Kabuki is performed all over Japan, but since this theater is dedicated to this traditional Japanese art, Kabukiza is known as its most glorious stage.
A grand 4-story theater totaling 1,964 seats, Kabukiza sees new performances every month. While entering such as theater may seem to be a high hurdle, there are reasonably priced one-act galley tickets sold on the same day, so even newcomers can easily enjoy watching Kabuki.
Opened in 1889, this building is now in its 5th incarnation. Connected to Kabukiza Tower, an office skyscraper appearing in the background, it is now in a commercial complex called, “GINZA KABUKIZA”.
On the 5th floor of Kabukiza Tower, the actual props and costumes used in Kabuki are displayed in the Kabukiza Gallery.

Highlights

  • This is a theater dedicated to Kabuki performances.
  • As long as it’s not during the performance, eating and drinking is allowed, and buying a bento to eat at your seat is recommended.
  • In Kobikicho Square on level 2 of the basement, there are restaurants and shops selling kabuki goods.

    去年和朋友去银座玩,想顺便体验一下观赏歌舞伎的感觉。一幕见席的票当场就能买到,虽然坐在特别靠后的座位,但看舞台也很清楚。尽管不太懂剧情,但演员的表演很生动,也很风趣的样子很有感染力。舞台装饰特别艳丽,留下了深刻的印象。
