Kabuki-za Theater

by JohanIsWeg

Can anyone tell me what the current status of the Kabuki-za Theater is? I know there are no longer performances, but is the facade in tact, or has it been demolished?

Re: Kabuki-za Theater

I doubt it's up now. It's probably behind a temporary wall to protect the surrounding buildings, but if I have a chance, I'll check it out and let you know, unless someone else knows.

Last time I remember noticing (June maybe), the site was covered with the usual blue construction hoarding, as is common in Japan. Nothing to see.

The plan is to refinish the facade and build a new structure behind it. Reopening in 2013, or 14?

Re: Kabuki-za Theater

by dru46

I can now confirm that the kabukiza is gone. Covered, as mentioned by construction boarding.

Pity, was hoping to see the facade :-(
Where would be the best place to see a kabuki play in December?

Re: Kabuki-za Theater

by dru46

From what I can figure out, there is only one place in Tokyo to see Kabuki.

http://www.kabuki-bito.jp/eng/contents/theatre/shimbashi_enbujo.html

It says Shinbashi, but it's closer to Higashi Ginza or Tsukiji. Ginza, Shinbashi, and Shiodome are all within walking distance, but not really close.

I doubt you'll be able to book tickets online until November. October seats aren't being sold till the 12th.

If you are planning to go to Kyoto, I'd consider going there instead, as they still have a nice Kabuki Theatre there. Navigate to the homepage and you'll find it there.

Kabuki is just one Japanese theatrical form, the other is NOH.

http://www2.ntj.jac.go.jp/unesco/noh/en/

The National Noh Theatre is close to Shinjuku (Yoyogi):

Travel Tips for Tokyo

Babys and Toddlers in Tokyo Be-ware

by tedandtina

There are few restrooms with changing tables when you go to a local restaurant or shop. Usually you will have to find a place like in the corner on a tatami or inconspicuos place

Also according to my husband, not many men's restrooms have changing tables....what a surprise...

Sometimes, the handicapped restroom allows for Diaper changing, and that is a relief for any parent.

Probably the nicest people I've met yet...

by sissah

Japanese people are outrageously kind. They will go out of your way to help you, even if you don't speak a word of Japanese, and they don't speak a word of English. A couple years back I went to visit my ex-boyfriend in Sasebo, and we were driving somewhere, and this guy came up on his motor scooter and spent about ten minutes trying to make us understand that one of my friend's tail lights were out. Most places you go, people won't tell you that, and if they do and realize you have no idea what they're saying, they'll quit trying to help. I am undeniably impressed with how kind and generous the Japanese are. Except the chick who's sleeping with my ex-boyfriend. She's a little too kind and generous. I'd be happy if she fell off the face of the planet. Or accidentally lost her chin. What guy wants to kiss a girl with no chin, anyway?

Ebisu Garden Place

by vigi

At the end of the Ebisu main square, you can easily see a lovely European style building. I though this is preserved old buildings, but in fact, it is a classy French restaurant. Newly built imitation of European architecture.

Cosplay at Yoyogi Koen

by FelixB

Cosplay or Kosupure, as the Japanese call it, is a Japanese invention that derives from the English words costume and play. It could basically be called Japanese carnival, with the slight difference that it happens throughout the year and partly involves a kind of semi-professionalism of the people in disguise.
Cosplayers can be found everywhere in Japan but the most famous spot is Yoyogi Koen. Mainly girls flock from all parts of Tokyo into the city with suitcases and change at the next McDonald's toilet or elsewhere. Lots of the costumes are handmade, although shops selling those costumes have increased as well. From seeing all this one has to guess that a lot of time is spent for make-up and hair.
The charactes vary from Goths to the famous protagonists of Anime, Manga, Video Games and other Pop Culture. This dress up is mainly regarded as an escape from the strict school life, but simply also as fun that is rewarded by the many photographers who wish to get a photo of the best cosplayers..
This phenomenon that is based on the tolerance for found in Japan is not unique anymore, as some kids in America and Europe have started to copy it, although they dress up on special conventions.

Where it is: The busiest spot is in front of Harajuku station at the the entrance to Yoyogi-Koen/Meiji Shrine.
