Travel Guide - Konpira Grand Theater (Kanamaru-za)

InformationInformation

Konpira Grand Theatre, or also called Kanamaru-za, located near the base of the steps towards Kotohiragu Shrine is Japan's oldest existing Kabuki playhouse. The theater was originally built in 1835 and the design was based on that of the Onishi Theater (Naniwa-za) in Osaka. The theater was once used as a movie theater after falling into disuse for many years. Then the theater was restored and moved to the current location in 1976 after the theater's cultural value was recognized and designated as an important cultural property in 1970.
Inside of the theater, you can wander backstage and around the changing rooms, and admire the human-powered revolving stage. Kabuki plays are performed by famous Kabuki actors every spring, usually in April (Only Kabuki guests are allowed to enter during the performance season).
