Special Performance by Kabuki Actor

Kabuki is one of the most famous traditional performing arts among guests from overseas, but it can be difficult to experience the true excitement of the genre just by going to a performance. We can arrange for guests to meet an actual actor and learn first-hand about the intricacies of the art form. While the actor will first appear in as his true self, he will demonstrate how a character is created through applying make-up. It will be just like visiting the dressing rooms backstage at Kabuki-za. He will then don a wig and put on numerous layers of kimono to complete the transformation into a beautiful young woman and perform a short scene. Afterwards there will also be time for photos with participants.This introduction to Kabuki is a rare opportunity to interact with an actor, and is certain to be an unforgettable part of anybody’s visit to Japan. Depending on the venue, meals can also be arranged while watching the presentation.
