my first experience to

Kabuki

it was not in the real indoor Kabuki hall
but outdoor!!!
the effect was just AMAZING!!!


the Kabuki performance i went was played by
the top Kabuki actor (Kanzaburo NAKAMURA) and his 2 sons
i was fortunate to see the live performance of one of his famous acts 連獅子(renjishi)

before...i had absolutely no interest in kabuki
after... gosh!! i want to see more!! hehe!!
next goal: see kabuki in THE kabuki hall in Tokyo!


my jap granny went with me :)
why were we in raincoats? HAHA!!
it was about to rain...(thanks God it didn't)
but the raincoat saved our life
because it was so windy!! ><

but hope that next time when i go see kabuki
i can be in a beautiful kimono...hehe!

when are u going to dress up like a scary geisha and join the club?
or, we should do that when i come visit next and we'll hit Kyoto and do all sorts of crazy things while in dressed in our geisha costumes/white faces.

btw, ur friend melissa reminds me of a korean actress!
