TOKYO KABUKI GUIDE is a kind of concierge.



TOKYO KABUKI GUIDE.COM provides you all information about Kabuki in Tokyo.


TOKYO KABUKI GUIDE.COM helps the guests to enjoy Kabuki more and more in the following ways.

Regular tour
 -Provision of tickets & pre-performance lecture over the traditional  
  Japanese tea & sweets at the nice tea salon near the theatre.
   Tour fee : 3,000yen. (3,500yen on Sundays and national holidays) 

   (Lecture includes the background of Kabuki, the features of Kabuki, some hints on  
    Kabuki show that the guests will be seeing, etc.) 

 -Selection the
programs for Kabuki tour to enjoy Kabuki casually. 

 
Kabuki show time is usually about 4 and a half hours. Many people from abroad feel that the full 
  Kabuki show is too long, even for some Japanese.
Some Japanese select the shows to see because 
  each program in a show is an individual story.

     
TOKYO KABUKI GUIDE.COM selcets the programs upon your requests and then tour schedule will
     be set, if you like.
 
●Please note we often have to stand in line over one hour in order to buy the single show "Makumi" 
  tickets at Kabuki-za theatre.



Kabuki tours for group tour, students etc. are available. If we may be of any further assistance, please let us know.

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 audio guide (ear phone guide).   
      ★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.
