Mrs. Yazui gave an interesting lecture about Kabuki and about the play we were going to see. Clearly she's an expert on this matter!

The in-depth introduction of Kabuki was intensive by the tour guide. As speculators of the performance we were astonished by the stage and the performers. The cultural experiences were breathtaking. We will attend another Kabuki performance on the next trip to Japan.

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
