Speaking of theaters where you can watch Kabuki, Kabukiza Theater in Tokyo is famous. Now, we introduce five representative theaters in other regions, where you can enjoy Kabuki. Each of the theaters is attractive differently from Kabukiza Theater, with its own history and quaint building. Unlike Kabukiza Theater, however, Kabuki is not necessarily performed every month at those theaters. Therefore, you should check stage performance schedule before you go there.
Tickets for Kabukiza Theatre, Shinbashi Enbujo Theatre, Osaka Shochikuza Theatre, and Kyoto Minamiza Theatre can be purchased on the below website. If you check out a program and like it, why don’t you go see Kabuki?

Shinbashi Enbujo Theatre is five minutes on foot from Kabukiza Theatre. It was opened in 1925. At that time, in Kyoto and Osaka, Enbujo and Kaburenjo existed as a place to show local dances. In hope of having such place also in Tokyo, Shinbashi Enbujo Theatre was established. The present building was remodeled in 1982. It is a little smaller than Kabukiza Theater, but has a calm atmosphere. At Shinbashi Enbujo Theatre, Kabuki is performed several times a year. By the way, Super Kabuki Ⅱ “One Piece” was performed for the first time at Shinbashi Enbujo Theatre. Shinbashi Enbujo Theatre is attracting attention with, for example, a new Kabuki “NARUTO” to be performed in this year.
In addition to Kabuki, a wide variety of genres, such as Shinpa (new school play), Shochiku New Comedy, Shingeki (new dramas in modern Japan), and musicals, are performed. Tickets can be purchased on the site introduced above. (Both upper and lower pictures: © Shochiku)

Shochikuza Theatre in Dotonbori, Osaka, was born in 1923 as the first western-style theater in Kansai Area. A large arch of its front entrance with a neo-Renaissance style using terra cotta has been familiar to many people as Arc de Triomphe of Dotonbori. After that, the theatre became a home of an opera company Shochiku Gakugekibu (OSK).
