It is a relatively modern theatre on the edge of the temples and shrines of Asakusa and in some ways seems out of place but it does have a variety of performing arts including Kabuki. Outside is the stars hall of fame and worth a visit even if not to see a show.

I visited this place to watch live performance of an event which was held by a local community. The hall was middle size, and its capacity was 1200 pax. At an exhibition hall at 1st floor, there were some exhibition of the event. It's a typical Japanese local community hall.

Had a very nice experience there: was on a tour with my school and could see the back where the actors were dressing up, behind the sets, and then sat and watched a kabuki play.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
