Speaking of Kabuki in Nagoya, “Misonoza” was founded in 1908.
It was closed from 2015 for rebuilding, but reopened in the spring of 2018!
“Mizoza Tower” is a theater, restaurant and condominium.
Even gourmet restaurants that are not for theatrical purposes are also worth going.
The charm of “Misonoza Tower”
“Misonoza” was originally founded in 1897 as the main theater for Kabuki performances, and until 2015, it was loved as the stage for Kabuki shows.
However, the building was renovated due to the aging of the building.
And in the spring of 2018, it became the “Misonoza Tower” and became a large tower building that houses restaurants and condominiums as well as Kabuki.
The modern appearance of the lattice pattern of the “Misonoza Tower” was supervised by Mr. Kengo Sumi, a master of Japanese architecture who also designed the new national stadium.
Please drop in between shopping and sightseeing.
