I feel like this is not advertised on their website BUT you can pay to see just one act of the show. The first act ticket sales start at 10:30, but I would arrive around 10 (earlier on weekends or busy holiday weeks). They have...More

Wow!!! The costumes are amazing!!! We were walking by thought we would see if we could get tickets all they had were standing only. The one act we chose was 24 minutes and it cost 600 yen. It was absolutely worth standing! Beautiful theater!

First of all, I enjoy musicals on the west end and broadway. However, I thought this production was quite simple and the storyline is not rich. Frankly I almost fell asleep at some points and I noticed people around yawning etc. No offense, just my...More

We had to see Kabuchi, but he same day tickets were the only ones that would fit our budget (about $20 apiece.) We made our way to Kabukiza Theater about 1.5 hours before show time (15:00 for a 16:30 show). With about 70 people ahead...More

Very traditional entertainment in a historic theater. The plays are changed often offering matinee seating and evening performances. Pre purchase tickets are only available for full performance but are also relatively expensive Y18000-14000, ( approx $160 -$125) non the less these performances sell out quickly...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

The single act cost 1000 yen (but I think this depends on the show) and the translator was 1000 yen. You can share the translator - it's the size of a mini Ipad.
