Osaka Shochikuza, Osaka Reviews

  • This theatre is the home of the Osaka kabuki family that performs here. The theatre is a little smaller than the Kabuki za and National Kabuki theatre in Tokyo but the standard of performance equals or exceeds its Tokyo rivals. Ravishingly beautiful and completely underestimated by western audience's if you can get the opportunity to see some of Japan's greatest theatre, this is the place to see it.

  • Unique cultural experience about the soul and aspirations of the people of Wa.

  • Great location it is. It is very convenient to find any restaurant after finish the theatre.

  • My brother and I saw a Kabuki performance here. It was great, but I would recommend getting the audio guide for ¥300. We loved the performance, but were a little lost about some scenes.

  • taste was not bad... but a little bit unkind...
