Japan is definitely on my travel list. I had to cancel my trip to Tokyo in 2016 because my mum and boss at work were both sick. Your pictures always inspire me to go there and I know it was a fantastic trip for you and your family! ❤️

Not great pictures but it was just to have a look on Japanish traditional theater named: Kabuki.

Pictures are wonderful and clearly Japan was a magical trip for you and the family 👍❤️

Thank you! Yes it was a magical trip but long ago.
Better pictures on better posts could be written, anyway.

Interesting pictures. Who was in the audience? (I’m sort of interested in what kinds of groups of people pay for the ongoing sustenance of historic art forms.)

Me too! I am guessing tourists and “aficionados”.
Aucune chance d’y assister, car il faut s’y prendre très longtemps à l’avance. Notre séjour était trop court et comme toujours improvisé deux à trois jours à l’avance (cf: Our family Ireland pilgrimage)
Ces “vaudevilles” durent des heures. Il est possible d’y assister partiellement. Je resterai toujours sur ma faim, frustrée de ne pas avoir passé la porte, même pour 5 minutes de spectacle. Les affiches étaient une maigre consolation (avec en pensée un autre acteur).

You’ll have to go back someday with a longer planning phase, I suppose. It’s interesting that you can’t just pick up tickets — suggests not as many tourists as aficionados (compare to London theatre, for instance, where it’s often easy to get a ticket the same night as long as you don’t care which play).
