I’d like to offer you a warm welcome to the Otowaya website.

Kabuki is a genre of Japanese theatre with a history stretching back four hundred years. The main purpose of this website is to provide an introduction to the history of the house of Onoe Kikugoro and the Kabuki actors who have borne the hereditary stage title Otowaya. Over the long historical period from the birth of Kikugoro I down to the present day, generation after generation of actors in this lineage have carefully handed on the plays and roles bequeathed to them by their forebears.

I hope that this website will provide you with the opportunity to enhance your enjoyment of our stage presentations.
