(Information as of June 2016)

Kabuki-za Theatre

The opening ceremony was held in March 2013 and started as the "5th Kabukiza Theater". In addition to the four-story building in the Japanese Momoyama style, the Kabuki-za Theatre, a high-rise office building, and the Kobiki-cho Square, an underground plaza directly connected to Higashi-Ginza Station, are also located here. If you are a beginner who wants to see Kabuki once, we recommend the unreserved seats, which are the one-act viewing seats where you can easily watch your favorite play.

The Kabukiza Gallery on the 5th floor of the Kabukiza Tower, where you can appreciate exhibits related to Kabuki, the rooftop garden directly above Kabukiza, and the Kiboricho Square where limited sweets and goods are sold are worth a visit.
