Kabuki-za in Ginza is the primary kabuki theater in Tokyo. Kabuki is highly stylized, dramatic theater involving elaborate sets, costumes, and makeup along with over-the-top stage antics. While not nearly as popular as it was during the Edo Period, kabuki dance-drama is still an important part of Japanese culture, and many kabuki actors become quite famous. Tickets can be purchased online.
