Sightseeing in Tokyo

Ginza areas wrapped in refinement

With dignified, long-standing department and specialist stores, streets faced with lines of famous European luxury brand company stores, Ginza is perhaps Japan's most brilliant area.
Nearby, Yurakucho, with a JR station of the same name, is not simply a stop on the way to Ginza, but a great place for food and shopping at its enormous commercial complex.

From upscale restaurants to cozy pubs

Experiencing quintessential classical performances at the Kabuki-za

The Kabuki-za, a theater for kabuki performances, was reborn in 2013 as the fifth reincarnation of the building in a tradition extending back to 1889. With each seat featuring a good view of the stage along with good acoustics, the Kabuki-za is the only theater in the world dedicated exclusively to kabuki, and has a wide range of features such as earphone-equipped narration and subtitled guides. Visitors will also find a variety of dishes available for eating and assorted gifts available for purchase. The Kabuki Tower, a mixed-use building, houses the Kabuki-za Gallery with kabuki-related exhibits.
