We recommend you this reasonable event at the National Theatre in June & July almost every year. Only 1 act of Kabuki is performed, and before it Kabuki actor will illustrate how to enjoy Kabuki. You can listen to the information in English through theatre's pocket size radio "earphone guide" (extra) while you are watching Kabuki.
Especially recommended is the Kabuki play "Kenuki" (The tweezers) in July 2012. This is one of acts from "Narukami Fudo Kitayama-zakura", first performed in 1742, which is one of the very popular Kabuki play. Bisexual hero solves the princess's mysterious illness of her hair standing on end!
Many Kabuki plays are from true stories, which were famous affairs, murder cases, historical events, Japanese myths, and fables and mixture of some of these things.
Many traditional Kabuki plays express people's lifestyle and way of thinking particular to the Edo period in Japan.
Kabuki has many charm and deep attractiveness. I have been Kabuki lover for over 10 years, why don't you try and enjoy Kabuki?

歌舞伎は一つの芝居を全部上演する「通し狂言」と、いろいろな芝居の名場面を並べて上演する「みどり狂言」がある。通しだと休憩を入れて4時間前後と長く、ビギナーにはしんどい。「みどり」は、一幕40分くらいの間に信じられない展開で見る人を魅了する演目もあるが、全体の流れが分からないとおもしろさが半減する演目もあるので、何を観たらいいか選ぶのが難しい。
そこでオススメなのが、国立劇場6月、7月の『歌舞伎鑑賞教室』!手頃な料金の一幕公演で、上演前に歌舞伎役者が「歌舞伎のみかた」を解説してくれる。歌舞伎豆知識の小冊子とプログラムが無料配布されて、お得感いっぱい!私は過去に2回行きました。
今年は6月が「俊寛」。ビギナーには暗くて重い内容なので、私は7月の「毛抜き」を勧めたい。古風でおおらかで、楽しい謎解きストーリーをお楽しみください!

長谷寺(ちょうこくじ)『月曜参禅会』/初心者指導つきで参加費100円!

Chokoku-ji Temple offers Zazen-kai (meeting for zazen practice) from 19:00 to about 21:00 every Monday. We, Tamaki and I were inexperienced at Zazen however we were interested in it, so we tried it at last! We really had a very good time.

he schedule of Zazen-kai:

1) No need to make an appointment, but need to be at the reception desk inside the main building by 18:45.

2) At the entrance of the building, you must take off shoes, socks, and hat or cap. (So you may feel cold in winter.) And while staying, you need to keep quiet.

3) After reception, you can use a safe deposit box in the room which has a big table and many chairs.

4) In that room, you wait for the monk who will be your instructor for the day. We recommend you read the leaflet "SOTO ZEN, The Practice of Zazen" in English. It is located at the side shelf inside the entrance of the building.

5) Staff member of the Temple explains the day schedule and some rules, and introduces the monk to you. If you are wearing hooded clothing, or outer wear such as coats you must take it off. Staff member recommends you wear dark color clothing without hoods.

6) Take your things to the Tatami room. There are two rooms, one for men only and the other women only. Don't leave your valuable things here. You may change into clothing you brought during this time.

7) Move to another bigger Tatami room without your things, only take the leaflet, "The practice of Zazen".

8) The Monk instructs kindly and specifically for about 40min. He only speaks Japanese but don't worry.

9) Move to the special room for Zazen "Zendo", and you can start Zazen at last! Have fun thoroughly! Especially enjoy the Japanese traditional music performance when Zazen finishes! I've got to love it very much!
