Looking for something more in tune with Kyoto’s historic setting? You can’t miss a performance at Minami-za, Japan’s oldest kabuki theatre. Known for its bizarre quality, kabuki, a classical dance-drama, has been a popular art form since the Edo period, when crowds from all walks of life gathered to watch the performances. Today, the Minami-za is the most renowned spot in Japan to enjoy this otherworldly art.
