Single Act Tickets

What is a “Single Act Seat”?

You can choose to watch particular scenes at an affordable price within a short time. It is an ideal way to enjoy kabuki for both novices and experts, as well as tourists who want to save some of their time for sightseeing.
Each month different programs and plays will be presented at the Kabukiza Theatre. Therefore, information and prices will vary for Single Act Tickets. Details for each month’s Single Act Tickets will be decided by the first performance date of the month and will be announced on the website.

*Single Act Seats are only available at the Kabukiza Theatre (4th level) and occasionally at other theatres.
