Overview

Kabuki is a highly stylized traditional play with singing and dancing. All the roles are performed exclusively by males. If you are patient to wait in line for about an hour to buy tickets, it is a good chance to try watching a single Kabuki act or two with an inexpensive price.

What to Expect

Kabuki is a highly stylized traditional play with singing and dancing. It is worth watching Kabuki if you have a chance while in Japan, but it costs 4000 yen to 20,000 yen if you see the whole program of matinee or evening show, and the reserved tickets are often sold out in the previous month. Single Act tickets will be sold on the day of the performance (Single Act tickets cannot be reserved or purchased in advance). One person can purchase only 1 ticket for each PART. So, if you are patient to wait in line for about an hour to buy tickets, it is a good chance to try watching a single Kabuki act or two with an inexpensive price.
While waiting, I will explain what Kabuki is, a brief story of the program, actors, and today's schedule etc.

After watching Kabuki, we'll visit the Kabukiza Gallery, go to souvenir shops at the basement, and have lunch nearby.
We can move the order around, depending on the situation.

Important

A kabuki program usually lasts for 25 days each month, so there might be no shows in the beginning or the end of the month.

About tickets of single act (from Kabuki official website):
"Single Act tickets will be sold on the day of the performance (Single Act tickets cannot be reserved or purchased in advance). One person can purchase only 1 ticket for each PART. Every purchaser must be in line. Tickets can be purchased for consecutive PARTS in the same PLAY. Tickets will be sold in the order of presentation. The time and price will differ between each act, and be announced around the first performance date of the month and will be available in the “NEWS” section on the website or at the Box Office. There are approximately 90 Seats and 60 Standing Places for the Single Act (Total appx.156), located on the fourth floor of the auditorium. The seats are NOT ASSIGNED. Please note that according to the monthly performance, the number of seats and standing places may change."
