ENGLISH - SERVICE GUIDE AND INTRODUCTIONS


The “Earphone-Guide” provides essential translation of dialogue and lyrics, as well as explanations relating to the stories, music, dance, actors, properties and other aspects of Kabuki & Bunraku that may be difficult for non-Japanese visitors to understand. Comments are carefully timed to coincide with the action on stage.

The “G-Mark Guide” (captioning) service started in March 2015 at Kabukiza. According to the introduction of this new service, English Earphone-Guide service at Kabukiza terminated at the end of April 2015.

If you don’t have much time and a full-program seems too long and expensive, why not see a single play of Kabuki performance. You can buy the tickets for just one play only on the day you see the play at the entrance. The seats are in the rear of the theatre. G-Mark Guide and programs are also available for a tantalizing glimpse of the Kabuki experience. We are looking forward to your visit and using the G-Mark Guide.
