The Traditional Performing Arts Centre in Tokyo will be hosting an introduction to kabuki for those looking to learn more about Japan's most extravagant performing art.
Extremely rich in style, kabuki actors are famous for their larger than life costumes, makeup and performances. Dynamic stages, dramatic song and dance and expressive physical acting make a kabuki performance one of Japan's must-see attractions.
Established in 2003, the Traditional Performing Arts Centre is located right by the famous National Theatre and is a small museum regularly displaying the props and costumes of Japan's various theatrical arts.
Please check the official website for holiday and opening times. Entry is free.
The centre is a 5-minute walk from Exit 1 and Exit 6 of Hanzomon Station on the Hanzomon Subway Line or a 15-minute walk from Yotsuya Station on the JR Chuo-Sobu Line.
