Kabuki and yakitoriAs usual, this weblog - and Annett her weblog as well, admittedly to a lesser extend - is outdated. I had completely forgotten to write about our trip together with Edwin and Sjoerd to Kabuki, traditional Japanese theater. Thanks to a headset and an English translation, we were able to follow the story line and learn a thing or two about Kabuki. For instance, Kabuki is not as much focussed on realism, as western theater usually is, as on beauty and perfectionism. It was a very interesting experience, and I would go again if I would have the chance. Unfortunately we were not allowed to take any pictures inside, but we were of course allowed to take a picture in front of the theater.
Here is a nice picture of the four of us in a yakitori place, I believe from the night before they returned to The Netherlands. (Notice the cool, typical handwritten menu hanging on the ceiling.)
