Maneki (one of winter features in Kyoto )
Kabuki is a traditional shows in Japan.
We can enjoy fantastic performance and dress, kimono of actors.
Maneki, woody sign is one of winter features in Kyoto.
Many kabuki actor's name are written on the sign.
A long sign is built to announce "Kaomise " the first stage of new actors.
Many Maneki are raised to introduce new actors to Kabuki audiences.
Kaomise and Maneki are most important events of Kabuki.
Originally, Kaomise is done in Minamiza at Gion, but this time it is held in Rome Theater Kyoto because Minamiza is restoring now.
Rome Theater Kyoto is located near Heian Shrine famous for its large red torii.
TSUTAYA BOOKSTORE is next to Rome Theater Kyoto and there are many books of Kabuki.
Kabuki is traditional theater that is not familiar to Japanese people, but I want you to try it .
It will be fantastic experience !!
