Kabuki

Filed under: Events, Tokyo places — myyearinjapan @ 8:48 am

I went to see a kabuki play! (2 actually. And Kabuki is a kind of traditional Japanese theatre performance, by the way.) My Japanese isn’t good enough to understand it (of course), but I had a little earphone that told me what was going on in English. The earphone thing wasn’t all that great though because instead of translating what the actors were saying, it summarized their lines and actions. And it had no emotion, so it made the whole play feel flatter. And for the second play, the English was not timed right and it kept telling me what was gong to happen long before it happened on stage. I was actually kind of falling asleep at parts, but I’m glad I went and had the experience. I still enjoyed it.

Anyway, I don’t have any pictures of the plays, but I have some pictures of the theatre.
