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.

Kabuki is a vague and exotic abstraction for many Westerners. For Kazui Yabe, Kabuki is a lifelong passion that began with her visits to the theater with her grandmother. Kazui loves to share this passion with visitors to Tokyo, and she spares no effort to...More

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
