FEEL THE TRADITION THROUGH FIVE SENSES
The Kabukiza Theatre is not only a place to watch Japanese traditional performing art, Kabuki performances, but also to be able to experience Japanese culture in various ways. After participating in a “Tea ceremony” there, you will visit Matsushima, one of the Three Most Scenic Spots of Japan. It is simply overwhelming. This new experience on this trip will excite all of your senses.
