- Situated in glitzy Ginza, Kabuki-za is Tokyo's premier kabuki theater. Originally built in 1889, the theater itself is a testament to Tokyo's famous tenacity: it has been rebuilt three times in its history – in 1911, 1924, and 1950 – and it remains one of Tokyo's most stunning examples of baroque Japanese revivalist architecture. Although kabuki is performed entirely in Japanese, it is still satisfying to take in this culturally and historically rich art form, especially at the Kabuki-za. Even better, visitors can rent an audio program with an English explanation of the performance.
