Kabukiza Chūō Ku  Japan
This theater, which stages traditional kabuki works performed by men playing both male and female roles, is in the heart of Ginza. The plays are a mix of historical and modern dramas, with the stylized staging, costumes, and make-up that characterize kabuki. While locals often come to experience a work in its entirety, which can last a few hours, it is possible to purchase one-act tickets for a taste of the art form. Be sure to rent the radio with earphones for an English explanation of the show, along with cultural background. There is a beautiful tearoom on the rooftop, and in the basement of the theater are several shops selling souvenirs and snacks; both are open to the general public even if you are not attending a play.
