We were able to book tickets for our group of 5 for the May Matinee. We were in the third tier (closer to the front) and had an excellent experience. The seats weren't so comfortable, but it didn't matter! The shows were amazing and the...More

If you are not a theatre person this could still be for you. Kabuki shows are sold in small chunks on the same day so you can just buy a ticket for a 45m dance or watch several acts.

When in Tokyo… We had decided we would go to see a kabuki performance if it was convenient. We knew we would not understand much of it, but it seems to be a traditional thing to do while we are here. Our opportunity came on...More

Its a really beautifull place you have to visit. Full of magic and mistery its just a must go and it is very close to Tsukiji Market and Ginza which are a must see as well.

I loved it! My husband loves Japanese culture and wanted to stay for more than 1 act so we bought tickets and stayed for the ENTIRE 4.5 hours.... I didn't think that I would be able to sit for that long, but the each act...More

There are morning shows and afternoon shows, each with three "numbers" or excerpts or short plays. If you want to only taste one, you can line up outside (up to 90 minutes before each begins) for a high balcony place (there are only 90 posts)...More

This is a wonderful choice for anyone who is cultured and loves art, history, and dance. That being said, this is not everyone's "cup of tea". Please, do yourself a favor and research the plays online before buying tickets. The storylines and styles vary between...More

I got a single act ticket to the 2nd act. It was a very long act. I enjoyed experiencing some Japanese culture but this act was incredibly long and I was glad that I had only purchased a single act and not tickets to the...More

A fantastic thing to do if you're interested- Kabuki is a quintessentially Japanese cultural thing to see. You can either see a full 3-play performance (which, to be honest, is arduously long at 4.5 hours, and expensive) or turn up on the day and get...More

One of the highlights of our recent trip to Tokyo was to attend all three acts of Kabuki at Kabuki Theatre. Easy access by subway from Higashi-Ginza, there is a dedicated subway exit for the theatre. Theatre is beautiful inside and outside. Definitely worth investing...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

you can look it up on line where they give the synopses of the separate acts.they seem to change the program from week to week.if you go get the simultaneous translation
I didn't pack any particularly dressy clothing for my visit to Japan. Would they turn you away if you wanted to drop in for a single act, but were dressed casually? (Say, a dress shirt, nice jeans and closed-toe casual shoes).

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

Can single act tickets be purchased online? I can't find a "single act" option online. Also, if tickets are bought the day of the play what kind of seats are assigned? Are the seats decent when bought the day of? I'm so confused

You have to pay them at the box office, sales normally start 1-2 hours before the show. The tickets are typically for stall seats - not too bad. Suggest checking out show you hope to catch and going early to get the tickets... More
