The whole building was recently renovated. If you want to buy the cheap "chair seat , you can enjoy the taste of Kabuki. The basement is directly connected to subway access. There is also a huge gift shop in the basement. Very nostalgic old Japan...More

Kabuki isn't always easy for a Westerner to follow. Went to a 1 act performance. Would be hard to go for the full day of acts which last about 3 1/2 hours rather than the 1 act 1 to 1 1/2 hour performance. You can...More

Good place to catch a show, there are different times. You can buy tickets on the spot for single act which lets you sit/stand on the fourth floor only. The show that I went was good, quite boring in the first half as there was...More

If you aren't a kabuki enthusiast, you should still check out one act at this theatre. They sell those tickets at the side door and the seats are in the balcony. Totally worth it to see something traditional and different. Be sure to check out...More

I watched Kabuki, "July at the Kabikiza Theater," with my wife. We got our seats very close to the flower way and could watch Ebizo (Ichikawa) and his four-year son, Kangen (Horikoshi - He is much smaller on the stage than I thought.) in a...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

I think you can eat during the intervals. You'd better double check with the theater's staff!

You should be fine! As long as the theatre has a seat available, they will let you in. Enjoy!!
