Why did you start this service?
I, Kazui Yabe, a Japanese female licenced tour guide and a volunteer Japanese language teacher, have enjoyed Kabuki for many years and have already had many chances to take both Japanese and foreign friends to the Kabuki-za Theatre before I started my service in 2010.
I believe that with some essential information about the art itself and the plays on performance, Kabuki becomes understandable and enjoyable. I am happy to help with that, in finding and conveying the intresting points of Kabuki theatre and its programs. And I wish to share my many experiences and knowledge; to show guests a part of the Japan I love as a Japanese person.
Seeing Kabuki is to see Japan’s traditional stage arts which have been established for over 400 years.
