Kabuki-za has one big advantage compared to other such theaters – for Y 700 ticket you'll get English-language comments to the show – but you can try being like local and switch them off. The text is century-old so most Japanese don't understand the language too.
Usually the show comprises four plays four hours each – you can arrive whenever you like but better book tickets in advance – sales start mid-month so hurry up to secure the best seats.
