Kabuki Meetup at Kabuki-za Theater

Kabuki   Tokyo

Kabuki(歌舞伎) is a traditional stage drama performed exclusively by men to the accompaniment of songs and music. It is characterized by a combination of rhythmical word, dancing, elaborate costumes, and stage sets.
On this tour, we will visit Kabuki-za Theater(歌舞伎座) in Ginza to see the Kabuki show and Intreview with Keizo Otani, the famouse Kabuki Actor. Let's join the tour and find out why so many people love Kabuki all over the world!

Have you ever felt:
◎Pictures of that beautifully presented cuisine, that perfectly sculptured garden, that sacred shrine emitting a divine radiance, taken during your visit in Japan could be even further enriched with knowledge of their story that lay in the background?
◎Baffled about why things are done or presented a certain way at a certain time but do not possess the articulacy in the local language to express it?
◎You’ve always wanted to experience first-hand the true Japanese culture as felt by the locals but have never gotten the chance to?
 
Join us! At Samurai Meetups and see desire satisfied and thirst for knowledge quenched!
