I really liked this show, especially it's music. The whole show was a nice combination of some kabuki, dance, swordplay and some anime.

This show is a mix of everything Japanese, from Kabuki to modern Harajuku style pop, from swordplay to acrobatics, and traditional Japanese instruments such as the flute and taiko to electric guitar. There is also a clever use of colors in both the costumes and...More

A fun musical performance show, although don’t go in expecting any kind of story. It’s basically a music and dance performance to show the surface-level tourist version of Japanese culture. Kind of feels like a dry run for a 2020 Olympics opening ceremony piece, so...More

I went to this show for free as an international student. I did not know the regular price (~5000 yen?), so I did not expect much. However, I was blown away by the performance of the cast and the variety of shows. Highly recommended.

The show is centered around a young girl and the four Japanese seasons, vividly expressed using dancing, music, acrobatics and singing.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
