Visiting the Kabuki-za theater for a performance is definitely worthwhile, especially since you can attend a matinee for just one act and buy your ticket on the day of the performance. I was crestfallen when we found there was only standing room availability but it...More

The single act was only 1400 yen and it ran from 11:00am - 12:45pm. The key is to get there early to purchase a ticket to ensure a seat. We enjoyed the performance, beautiful costumes, music and stage settings. The Kabukiza Theater is an amazing...More

Kabuki theatre is an amazing experience. The performances, makeup and costumes are awe inspiring. An entire performance is about 4-5 hours. For a taste of Kabuki for a fraction of the price I suggest going to a single act. Our show consisted of three acts;...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

No, you can’t. It is the theater and they prepare time for your bite at the restaurant inside the building usually in the middle of all dramas.
