    Why did I start this tour?

     Kabuki is a very fascinating performing art. I have enjoyed Kabuki for many years! I love all peforming arts such as opera and musicals. I wish to share my many experiences and knowledge; to show guests a part of the Japan I love as a Japanese person.
     I want many people to enjoy Kabuki as I do, but I think pople can enjoy Kabuki more with some information before you rent the English subtitle devices.   
          ★read more  FAQS (Q11)


    Who is your guide?

     I, Kazui Yabe, a Japanese female licensed tour guide and a volunteer Japanese language teacher. I have seen the Japanese traditional stage arts over 200 times, such as Kabuki, Bunraku puppet play and Noh.
     My home is very close to the Kabuki-za theatre and Tsukiji. I love the neighborhood surrounding the Kabuki-za theatre.
