What you'll do

Join this tour and explore in and around the famous Kabuki-za theater!

This is a perfect introduction into the kabuki world, where you get to know about the extravagant traditional art without getting a hard-to-come-by ticket.

First up is Kabuki-za Gallery inside modern Kabuki-za Tower right behind the theater, where you can learn about the history of kabuki-za as well as what's going on behind the stage.

You can marvel at gorgeously detailed costumes, take photos while holding props and instrumentals, or even go up to a mock-up stage and pretend to be a fierce kabuki actor. And don't forget to check out kabuki-related goods at the souvenir shop in the basement.

After that, I'll show you around the surrounding Higashi Ginza area. In contrast to the adjacent Ginza district, the poshest neighborhood in Japan, Higashi Ginza has a much more casual atmosphere. Once you walk into an alley, you can find a lot of traditional specialty shops, selling Sensu(fans), Tenugui(hand towels), and Kanana(swords).

We'll end our tour with a delicious bowl of green tea at glorious Hama Rikyu Gardens, which have been loved by many shoguns as well as the imperial family in its 350 years of history.
Other things to note
*Gallery admission fee (600 yen) and the cost of tea are not included in the price.
*Please come with comfortable clothes and shoes that are fit for walking.

Where you'll be

Kabuki-za Theater
The only theater in Japan that is exclusively dedicated to kabuki plays. The current structure was rebuilt in 2010 in order to improve quake resistance, but it still retains the authentic kabuki feel of the original one from a century ago.

Hama Rikyu Gardens
Founded in 1652 by Shogun Tokugawa Ietsuna, the biggest feature of this stunning place is the central tidal pond which changes its appearance according to the tide level.
