4. Kabuki theatre

A spectacular theatre show of Japanease cultue, wrapped with pastelic colours and live music. It is placed just a walk distance from Ginza main street, you can enter a short session which is still 2 hours and rent a device for English translation.

What to spare

Tokyo Science Museum: There are two science museums in Tokyo, one beside the imperial palace east gardens and the National Science museum in Ueno. Both are  very disappointing and would fit only if you travel with young (below 12) kids. The Imperial park science museum shop has got good scientific kits and interesting puzzles for sale.

Uneo park: come to here only in the cherry blossum season. If you vivist the Tokyo National Museum than anyway it is a short walk distance so worths the walk, but unlike what Lonely Planet say, it is not so amazing.
