Kaho Gekijo Kabuki Theater嘉穂劇場

Theater

This Kabuki playhouse overflowing with Edo period atmosphere opened in 1931. It has a luxurious space accommodating up to 1,200 people in an area that once flourished as a coal mine. There are two passages through the audience and a circular stage, and it still putting on performances for the masses. There are also a number of costumes available to wear, so why not try one on and take a commemorative photo?
