Shinbashi Enbu-jo Theater

Shinbashi Enbu-jo is a theater located in Ginza, Tokyo. It was completed in 1925 and suffered damage during the World War II air raids. Major renovations were undertaken in 1982, incorporating technological upgrades and expanding to take over the nearby Nissan Motors Building. Nowadays, it is a major kabuki venue, although other types of performances such as musicals and drama take place here as well.
