130603-0038 - Tokyo Kabukiza


Tokyo Showa 1920s Unknown
Two cars parked in front of Kabukiza, a theater for kabuki performances, in Ginza, Tokyo. The original Kabukiza was established in 1889 (Meiji 22). It was replaced with the building on this image in 1911 (Meiji 44). This structure was destroyed by fire in 1921 (Taisho 10), after which a new building was built in baroque Japanese revivalist style. This was demolished in 2010 (Heisei 22) to make way for a larger modern structure. The theater has been run by the Shochiku Corporation (松竹株式会社) since 1914 (Taisho 3).

This image has faded a bit.
