Japan–Culture (Kabuki)


Kubuki, meaning “the art of song and dance,” became popular Japan at the turn of the 17th century when theatrical productions by a female dancer named Okuni of Izomo became popular among “the common people” of Kyoto. According to, originally both women and men performed kabuki dramas but eventually men took over all roles, as well as all the pretty kimonos and makeup. Today kabuki, though performed most often for tourists, still holds a special place in Japanese culture as a respected traditional art form.
