Kabuki Performance in Tokyo

I attended a kabuki performance in Tokyo. This is the first experience of kabuki, although I have visited Japan on more than ten occasions during the past 25 years.

Kabuki is written in 3 chinese characters which mean, "song, dance and skill".

Kabuki is a play with a story line. It is performed entirely in Japanese dialogue. We can rent a receiving device which translate the dialogue into English through a earphone.

All the actors are males. They play the parts of both males and females.

It is an enjoyable performance.
