Kabuki-za is the theater for Kabuki, and is located just east of Ginza area.
The enterprize organization of "Kabuki-za" was established in 1889.
Before that, there were some theaters in Tokyo, but the Kabuki-za theater was larger than these, then it had invited many excellent Kabuki actors, so it became the sanctuary of Kabuki.
But the theater was burned down by a short circuit in 1921.
In 1925 it was rebuilt, but it was destroyed in air raid in 1945 again.
After postwar years of recovery, the theater with 2,600 seats was built in 1950.
But it got older. So the new theater was rebuilt in 2013.
In all period, Kabuki-za has always been the central theater of Kabuki.
