Neighborhood: Higashiyama-ku
Overview

Built in 1615, and boasting nearly 400 years of history, the Minamiza is Kabuki at its finest. Though plays are continually running throughout the year, the Minamiza takes particular pride in its December Kaomize performances. Japan's most famous thespians "show their faces" before their admiring audiences. The pace of the drama may be a bit slow for some tastes. Try to catch a "dance" segment if you prefer more action than pageantry on stage.
