Enjoy Kabuki in Tokyo

Here's another great option you can do when you visit Tokyo: Going to a kabuki show. This is highly recommended if you like performing arts and traditional culture that's still alive today.
These 2 videos will give you a brief introduction to what kabuki is and what it looks like. Each one of them is less than 5 minutes.

Then you must be wondering where you can see kabuki in Tokyo and how to buy a kabuki ticket.
You can see kabuki performances at Kabuki-za (Kabuki Theatre) in Ginza. The closest station is Higashi Ginza. (Check out this page for train information in Tokyo. Also, you can download a metro map from our website - click here to download it.)
By the way, you can hire an English Earphone Guide at Kabuki-za. So, you can listen to the translation and commentary in English through this guide while watching a kabuki performance. So, you don't need to speak Japanese at all!
(And frankly, most Japanese people wouldn't understand the traditional Japanese language used in a kabuki performance.)

You can book a ticket via Shochiku's website (the company that run Kabuki-za) here. Follow the instruction on the website and you'll be ready to enjoy your kabuki experience in Tokyo!
By the way, Shochiku's website Kabuki-Bito gives you extensive information and tips on kabuki. Make sure to check it out!
