Kabuki Trip ’10: Day 5 (Shinjuku – Shimbashi – Odaiba)


This day we were supposed to go Disneyland, first time for both bf-san and myself, but due to the weather forecast (that it’ll rain the whole day), I switched the plan around, and decided to push Disneyland to a day later. Early in the morning, we had breakfast at the hotel. As usual, my favourite was the egg. But I loved the toasted bread with margarine too! (The picture doesn’t look appetising lol)


Kabuki Trip ’10: Day 3 & 4 (Shibuya – Ueno – Asakusa – Ginza)


After the afternoon show of Takizawa Kabuki, I met up with Bf-san at Harajuku. He was shopping around while I was watching Takki :) We proceeded to Shibuya for lunch, and chanced upon this restaurant called Negishi. The food was delicious, and supposedly healthy as well.


Kabuki Trip ’10: Day 2 (Harajuku – Ginza)


After having breakfast at the hotel, we left for Harajuku. But by the time we got there, it was already about 10.30am. I had to take a queue no. from the guy at the bridge. It said, to come back at noon.


Kabuki Trip ’10: Day 1 (Singapore – Tokyo – Yokohama)

Now that I’m done with the butai reports, I can finally start to talk about my trip. It was my first trip with bf-san to Japan, and our 3rd trip together. But this was his first time to Japan so again I played tour guide heh~ Over the 10 days or so, I re-visited places, but also went to places for the first time. It was perhaps the most ‘exciting’ trip, literally – thanks to the rollercoasters lol


Dad & youngest bro sent us off at T3, and we had a late dinner at The Pasta Shop. Then we went in to the departure hall…

Takizawa film: Prologue to Masakado

The curtains raised, and the Takizawa short film played on the screen.

The main actor in the film is Yamamoto Ryota. He really does look like Yamada Ryosuke of HSJ in this film lol. He’s dressed in modern day casual shirt and jeans, and climbed up a ladder in a deserted house, up to the attic. There was a samurai headgear and a katana placed up there… and sometimes the film was shown from the headgear’s POV.

It’s a little eerie… and finally when Yamamoto touched the katana, he clutches his head in pain, and many scenes of killings, blood splashes, etc from the past flashed back…

Finally there was a close up of Masakado (Takki) – we can see his eye, and I remember it’s slightly reddish, and a scene from the past – of Masakado standing on a pathway in his full samurai headgear & armour.

The film ended there, and we’re brought back into the past, onto the stage…
