Really enjoyed this show. It lasts one hour but you can get there up to 90 minutes before hand to eat and drink. I arrived 30 mins before the show and it was a sell out. Free drinks inc soft drinks and beer and snacks were crisps and nuts. The staff were friendly. The show is all in Japanese but that didn't stop our enjoyment. Geishas, ninjas and comedy all rolled into one and you understand what's going on, even if you don't speak the language. The theatre is hard to find , it's next door to the Hard Rock Cafe in case you need to ask directions . Casual dress inc shorts is fine
Show was excellent, pretty easy to find right next to the Hard Rock Cafe the show was in Japanese but could follow for the most part, staff were very friendly and helpful. Great way to spend a night in Tokyo
Superb show, high energy and while all in Japanese we could make out the story. Very good actors and talented and nice to meet some before the show. Was a bit surprised about the tipping of actors at the end.
The show itself was nice with a mixture of traditional and contemporary scenes. I did wish that they had hot food as part of the package and not as an extra.
I enjoyed the show even if it was not my first time :
Plum set is very very light but was good enough to wait for real dinner after the show :
Thoroughly enjoyed the show but the meal wasn't quite what we expected. Although it was Japanese Style, it would have been a better idea to have something to eat before going to the show as there are plenty of places nearby for eating such as the Outback Steakhouse.
Overall the show was excellent and would definitely go back and see it. Costumes and music are all amazing, just the food is a bit different and not something that is used to.
The service by the staff there is a bit neglectful and rude. If youre a foreigner theyll stick you in the corner and although its all you can drink they pretty much ignore you after the first order and begrudgingly serve you afterward. The food wasnt that good and service stops once the show starts. The show itself is the only saving grace to the evening. It was absolutely amazing. I was dazzled by the performance of the actors, the music and the lights and costumes. Id watch it again but Id eat and drink elsewhere.
The show was interesting but it wasn't all that traditional and had many elements of a modern variety show. The food was ok - traditional and local but we couldn't get in to the room temperature/cold/soft texture. I would recommend seeing the show but unless you are a big fan of the boxed variety of food, eat prior to going.
Keep your eyes on your personal effects - my wife left her jacket in the booth after we left. We came back the following afternoon but the manager was a bit rude and abrupt with my wife and they said they couldn't find it. It was a bit obvious that either a performer or worker decided that they'd rather take it than turn it in. Either way, I think the attitude could have been better considering that we were paying guests and deserved a little better respect. Unfortunate.
However...the only way you can get anything to drink is part of additional cost 1,000 yen package. You can not buy individual drinks...even just one soft drink is not possible.
The show was good....but not great. We in fact left before it was over as it was fairly repaticious

Interesting show snacks were not acceptable
I guess I really did not know what to expect. The show was good and told a story, but I expected it would be a number of different acts showcasing different Japanese forms of entertainment fan dance, geisha,etc. The food was ok it was already on the table when we arrived and therefore the miso soup was cold. Honestly, I would have been happy choosing some other activity.
This is not a Kabuki show. My mistake given the picture. The show consisted of a collection of unrelated performances and mostly non traditional costume changes. One of the hosts said the performers were new and may make mistakes.... set the bar low. Having said that, the performances were entertaining, the food average and the drinks unlimited. Slightly overpriced for what you get. Staff were friendly and the venue was ok.
The theatre was 3rd rate. We were one of a handful of folks that showed up on time. The theatre sold cigarettes with a sign that they allowed smoking starting at 9:00 PM, our show time. We signed up for snacks and coktails, the snacks were stale chips and coktails were limited. We cut our losses and left before the show started.
