Have you ever heard of "Kabuki"?

Kabuki is Japan's traditional arts and is regarded as one of the world's greatest theatrical art!

The Gallery is below the theatre and at a Metro exit and designed for people to take home, usually as a gift in memory of their visit to the theatre. It has it all from rice crackers to sweets and other items reflecting the Kabuki Theatre. It is worth a stroll through and very Japanese. It is just at the... More

If you have not enough time to Kabuki performance , this is a nice option. You can view and even touch kabuki accessories , see how the actors are doing makeup and see some scenes from performances. There is a photo studio "Alice" where you can even be dressed in kabuki closes and make a photo.

Kabuki performance is wonderful, but it is long and expensive. It may not fit into many people's travel plan. This museum gives a good idea about Kabuki performance and history. May props and costume used for the shows are displayed and a couple of different short movies are running to give you some taste of Kabuki. Rooftop garden is also... More

I almost missed this awesome little exhibition hall, if I hadn't clicked into one of those promotional short films played on the personal entertainment systems on the ANA flight here. Being an amateur theatre person I have an above average interest in native forms of performing art at places I travel to. The Kabukiza Gallery is a well stocked and... More

This gallery has some information about Kabuki and the Kabukiza building. Attached are a garden and a wonderful cafe that serves traditional matcha and sweets. The cafe is a tad expensive, but worth it if you love green tea. The garden is free.

At the top of the building housing the Kabukiza theatre is a charming tea room with delicious treats, a rooftop garden, and a wonderful museum of Kabuki theater costumes, props and a small stage. A visit to the museum before a Kabuki performance enhances the enjoyment of the performance. Well worth the small admission fee to the museum.

Great place to go to see what happens behind the scenes at the Kabuki. Costumes props and special hands on exhibits and if you have a ticket to the Kabukiza you get a discount. Afterward you can descend the gallery staircase accessed from the rooftop garden to see more Kabukiza related exhibits

It was great seeing the men perform kabuki. Bring some good shoes to wear. I had to stand the entire time for the 1 act that I chose to see. English translations are available for an additional fee. This is recommended.

We enjoyed learning about the kabuki culture. Some hands on stuff to do like drawing and playing with instruments. Interesting the learn about the tradition. We were provided an English translation of the exhibit that was easy to follow along with. Beautiful well kept building!
