This theatre is located between Ginza and the famous fish market Tsukiji. It is a cool cultural experience and renting the tablet to translate the shows into English is highly recommended.

If you have time, chose to see a live performance (with audio guide of course). Otherwise, spend some time to visit it and appreciate the very nice front part of the theater.

You don't need to book in advance, unless you want to see the whole interminable show which I'm sure you don't. You can turn up, queue and see 1 or 2 acts, which is quite enough. A translator for hire helps otherwise you have no...More

Having been a theatre teacher before retirement, I was especially interested in seeing a live Kabuki performance when we were in Tokyo. To my delight we were able to find one. The Kabukiza Theatre presents original plays from the Edo period. The entire show is...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
