Kabuki is a Japan’s traditional stage arts that originated in early Edo period and passed down to the present.
Many foreign observers have been drawn to Kabuki for its women’s roles gracefully performed by male onna-gata in conformity with Kabuki’s longstanding tradition of banning women from the stage.
Bando Tamasaburo, for example, the most popular onnna-gata in Kabuki today, has also been lionized oversea.
Kabuki names are generally hereditary, and actor’s children undergo rigorous training from a very early age.
When you will be Tokyo, you will enjoy Kabuki performance at the Kabuki-za theater located in Ginza neat Tokyo Station.
