Annual Kabuki Performance at Minamiza Theater

Minamiza Theater

We went to see annual “Kaomise Kogyo Kabuki Performance” at Minamiza kabuki theater in Kyoto. According to the pandemic, the number of performance sessions has increased from 2 to 3, and the duration of each session has been shortened.We watched two performances of “Fuin-giri, breaking a seal of money not his” and “Matsuura no Taiko, a battle sign of a drum”.Both were easy to understand for me if I wasn’t a connoisseur of kabuki because their lines were easy to understand.

Fuingiri performed by Ganjiro and Ainosuke
Matsuuranotaiko performed by Nizaemon and Shiro
