We walked along through Ginza on our way to the Kabuki-za (Kabuki theater). Kabuki plays are unusual in many ways. First, all of the actors are men (even playing female roles). Second, Kabuki plays are very long, sometimes 12 or more acts, and are rarely performed at a single time. Instead, an evening at Kabuki-za might be three acts from three different plays! Even this can take several hours so it is possible to purchase tickets for just a single act.
