Travel Guide - Imperial Theater


Imperial Theater, or "Teikoku Gekijo" in Japanese, is the first Western-style theater in Japan opened in 1911. The historical theater with 1,897 seats is generally called "Teigeki" for short. Since the theater soon gained popularity as well as Mitsukoshi department store in Nihonbashi, the phrase "Today is for Teigeki, tomorrow for Mitsukoshi." came into fashion during the Taisho Period (1912 - 1926).
The theater's original building with Renaissance architecture was collapsed by the Great Kanto earthquake in 1923. Then the theater was reopened with the current building in 1966.
The theater has been offering many fine commercial plays and musicals that marked history such as "Gone with the Wind", "Les Miserables", "Elisabeth", and "Miss Saigon".
