Built in 1910, the Korakukan was designated as a National Important Cultural Property of Japan in 2002. It is the largest existing wooden theater and one of the oldest surviving wooden Kabuki theaters in Japan. The exterior has a Western-style frontal facade and the interior is a traditional Japanese design. Tours and performances are held daily from April to November. The daily shows however, are not considered “true kabuki” as it often incorporates humor and contemporary themes. But rather, the shows are a mix of a kabuki, singing, dancing and rakugo style comedy. Only once a year does a nationally renowned kabuki company perform a formal kabuki performance.
