The September Kabuki Program at the Minamiza Theatre is a full-length production of 'Tōkaidō Yotsuya Kaidan' by Tsuruya Nanboku IV (1755-1829), one of the greatest playwrights of Kabuki. In Japan there is a convention of performing 'chilling' ghost stories to beat the summer heat, and even today, this is one of the most famous. Star actors will perform this work brilliantly and will surely make you forget the summer heat in Kyoto.
