Theater

A theater which has been in operation since the Edo period (1603–1868) located in Higashiyama Ward in Kyoto City. The theater has held kabuki performances for close to 400 years in Shijogawara where kabuki originated from, making it the oldest and most tradition-rich theater in Japan. The current building, four stories above ground and one below, incorporates modern and Momoyama architectural styles and was designated a Tangible Cultural Property in 1996. The theater’s performances of the Kaomise, held each year from the November 30 to the end of December, have become a winter tradition in Kyoto, and the sight of the traditional signboards presenting the performers’ names in Kanteiryu calligraphic style crowding the theater front above the entranceway is renowned.

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
