This April, new Kabuki theater was opened at Higashi Ginza in Tokyo. I love kabuki, so every month I go to this theater. My favorite player is Mitsugoro Bando who is the best Japanese dancer. Kichiemon Nakamura peformed very well. His dramatic acting made me touching. Kabuki play have Japanese aesthetic for life, and it is simply fun to watch beautiful kimono and some classical stage effects.
