Tokyo Takarazuka Theater

The Tokyo Takarazuka Theater is designed in a way that the show can be viewed regardless of where you are seated. A red carpet is spread throughout the entrance area while the glittering lights from the chandelier promote an elegant mood.

With more than a total of 2,000 seats, this theater is extremely spectacular indeed and can hold a large audience for every performance.

The Takarazuka Revue Company, that made its base at Tokyo Takarazuka Theateris a women-only musical performance troupe and both male and female roles are played by women ( for sure, this is the only theatrical company in the world formed by female actors only).

They have a huge variety of program types like musicals, revues and shows, many different kinds of performances including western and traditional Japanese stories.

The distinctive characteristics of the Takarazuka Revue Company are its colorful costumes, bright makeup and spectacular stage productions.

The troupe is divided into 5 separate groups, “Flower”, “Moon”, “Snow”, “Star,” and “Cosmos,” and a leading duo (one playing the male role, the other playing the female role) is selected for each. A grand staircase with 26 steps stands right in the center of the stage and the climax begins when the lead star starts descending it.

Many glamorous shows are being performed also at the Tokyo Takarazuka Theater all year round, luring a large crowd to the venue.
