National Theatre November 2019 Kabuki Performance
“Kokō no Yūshi Musume Kagekiyo: Hyūga-jima”
Invitation to Single Act Seats

 We offer you a one of a kind opportunity to experience Kabuki. Witness this UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage, at the National Theatre, which neighbors the Imperial Palace’s Hanzōmon Gate, surrounded by lush foliage. Generally, it takes four hours to watch an entire Kabuki play. However, our single act tickets allow you to choose whichever the act you prefer, purchase a ticket at a reasonable price and enjoy the act without spending much time. It is the best option for those who are planning to travel to Japan or go sightseeing in Tokyo. An English synopsis of the whole story line, which will be handed out for free, allows you to grasp the entire plot even if you see only one act. Furthermore, if you are interested in having a deeper understanding, an English audio guide (paid) is available, which explains the highlights of actors’ performances, etc., according to the progress of the story.
