Travel Guide - Ginza Kabukiza

InformationInformation

Ginza Kabukiza is a complex facility consisting of Kabukiza Theatre and Kabukiza Tower. After the 4th generation of Kabukiza Theatre was closed for a period of three years, the reconstruction was finally completed in 2013.
Kabukiza Theatre is the only Kabuki specialized theater in the world, celebrating its 125th anniversary. While having maintained and refined sice the Meiji period (1868 - 1912), the classical theater has continued to present performances that incorporate the vigor of the times. The latest 5th generation of the theater, which was designed by architect Kengo Kuma, is a masterpiece where tradition and creation come together. Even if you don't plan to attend a Kabuki performance, it is worth taking a look at the theater. Performances usually take place twice daily. If you only wants to see part of a performance you can ask about a restricted ticket for the 4th floor for reasonable prices. You can also get an earphone guide that explains the Kabuki performance in English as you watch (but it is not available with restricted tickets).
Kabukiza Tower is an office building that emphasizes on traditional Japanese aesthetics. The 145 meters tall building behind Kabukiza Theatre is the highest structure in Ginza. The building houses Kabukiza Gallery on the 5th floor, which lets visitors experience the world of Kabuki even on days without performances at Kabukiza Theatre.
