Other places to enjoy on the 5th floor of the Kabukiza Tower!
On the roof of the Kabukiza Theatre, there is a Japanese-style garden that you can enjoy. You can enter this garden from the 5th floor of the Kabukiza Tower! Also on the 5th floor is the photo studio, ‘Studio Alice’, where you can take pictures wearing a kimono and transform into a character that appears in kabuki! ‘Jugetsudō’, a teashop where you can taste Japanese green tea is also located nearby. You can also buy souvenirs at the ‘Rakuza’!
Find the lucky Phoenix!
The crest of the Kabukiza Theatre is in the shape of a circle with a phoenix drawn inside. You can find this in many places at the Kabukiza Theatre: on the lanterns, on some of the seats inside the theatre, on doors, and also on the tiles of the roof!
You can get a good look at these tiles from the staircase of the rooftop garden.
Usually all the phoenixes are facing left, but you might find one phoenix looking in a different direction! It is said to be good luck to find this special phoenix. If you have a chance to come to the theatre, please try searching for it!
