    Here is the casting for the main roles in the main plays:

    plays Roles Actors
    Keya-mura Rokusuke Nakamura Kichiemon

    Ibaraki Mashiba, the demon Band˘ Tamasabur˘

      Oj˘ Kichisa Band˘ Tamasabur˘
    Keisei The courtesan Nakamura Tokiz˘
    Omatsuri The fireman boss Band˘ Mitsugor˘

    If you plan to go only for a single drama (4th floor of the Kabukiza), our personal recommendation would be either "Keya-mura" or Kawatake Mokuami masterpiece's Sannin Kichisa Tomoe no Shiranami.
