You can say that I am a fan of all things Japanese. I gravitate towards traditional Japanese arts. Kabuki, bunraku, rakugo - you name it, I love it. In particular, I am passionate about kabuki. My lifelong fascination with this art form began when my parents brought me to watch kabuki shows from a young age. I was in awe at how kabuki, with its colorful characters and larger-than-life storylines, captured the essence of 400 years of rich Japanese tradition. And I have not looked back since. Presently, I am a prolific writer who specializes in kabuki. Not only have my writings appeared in magazines like FRaU and on the hugely popular daily living website All About, but they have even been broadcast on the radio. Not one to rest on my laurels, I also give lectures on how parents can enjoy kabuki with their children. Join me on this tour and enrich your mind with intriguing insights on kabuki!

Keen to watch a kabuki show, but apprehensive that you will not get much out of the experience? Fret not, for my event will answer your prayers! You will first gather with other participants - kept at a cap of five people to allow for more intimate interaction - at the Kabuki-za Theatre in Higashi-Ginza. Once there, I will guide you on how to buy a single act ticket and give you a thorough explanation of the show you will be watching. With your mind prepared, you will be able to understand better the characters' motivations and by extension, the intricacies of human nature. This single act lasts about 30 minutes to an hour, so it is the perfect way to get acquainted with kabuki. Who knows, you may just like it enough to watch the full show another day. Many people have the misconception that kabuki is very high-brow, but my event will help you appreciate and enjoy kabuki easily!
