Kabuki Visiting is a field trip program to the sites of local Kabuki in small villages in Japan. The program includes appreciation of local Kabuki plays (some of them are often performed by children actors), backstage tour, reception party with the local people, introductory guidance of Kabuki, homestay experience in local families, local foods, etc.

The biggest advantage of this program is that you can have access to the local community and local Kabuki sites that could not be readily accessed alone or via any travel agencies. Communication with the local people on the cultural sites and in their own home (not hotel or inn) will surely enable you to touch the depth of the Japanese culture rooted in the local people’s life.
