Q2. Why is the Kabuki-za famous?

          Kabuki-za is the only theater in Japan that has shows every month. The late
          building's design was old and unique, registered as a Tangible Cultural Property
          by the Agency for cultural affair in Japanese Government in 2002.

          The new theatre looks much the same as the previous structure that was built 
          in 1950 in traditional Japanese architectural style, characterized by a large,
          tiled roof. But unlike previous versions, right behind it rises a 29-story office 
          tower.

Q3. Why was the old Kabuki-za demolished?

          The last Kabuki-za was built in 1955 and is quite worn-out. It also didn't offer
          barrier-free access.

          The last show was on April 28, 2010.
