It was a wonderful experience. My husband and I enjoyed the event and guidance by Elizabeth and her team. It was a night to remember. I never saw a kabuki show like this one before with a mix of so many performing styles, old and new. Watching the Geisha from Nagoya, Tokyo and Osaka show case their local dances was so special. Each city’s group had their own unique sense of fashion and style. Thank you so much!
