Kabukiza Theatre is a flagship theatre of Kabuki, a traditional Japanese performing arts. It has stood on the same site since 1889. After a reconstruction, including the building of a multipurpose office high-rise, Kabukiza Theatre opened again in April 2013. The daily program consists of 2 or 3 performances with 2 or 3 acts each. The line-up changes monthly. If you'd like just a taste of Kabuki, withought spending too long at the theatre, a "hitomakumi" single act ticket is an economical way to see one part of a performance in this daily program. To enable non-Japanese speakers to follow the performance, an English Earphone Guide rental service is provided. Just go to the Earphone Guide counter to rent. The cost of the rental for a single act is 500 yen and for a full performance(2 to 3 acts) is 700 yen, with a 1,000 yen deposit that is refunded when you return the receiver.
You can also get a sense of the world of Kabuki in the Kabukiza Gallery and the Rooftop Garden.
