Kabukiza – Ginza Kabuki Theatre

Posted in Places by tokyobling on July 13, 2013

In March this year the fourth incarnation of the Ginza Kabuki theatre opened. Originally founded in 1889, it burned down several times in earthquakes and wars, and in 2010 it was torn again to make room for a safer building. Even if you have been to the original building site it is hard to notice that the new building has been set back a few meters from the road, leaving more room in front of the theatre to make it more accessible. One of these days I am going to try and see one of the kabuki shows here!
