Hello. I am a student from Belarus, studying at the Faculty of History. My first scientific work will be about the Kabuki theatre and I would like to collect as much information as possible about it. In particular, I am missing sources, documentation or photographs related to Kabuki. I would be grateful if you can help me find them!

Hi Gleb, welcome to the forum!

What are you looking for specifically? Surely you have already googled for relevant info and sources available on the internet.

Hi, thanks for reply! In particular, I would need the memoirs of the actors and this text, at least in English - Okyôgen Gakuya no Honsetsu. I would also like to inquire, but in Japan they make reports about foreign tours? Kabuki first visited the USSR in 1928, and it is clearly documented if there is something similar on the Japanese side? I myself found a Kabuki job from Masakatsu Gunji. And a couple descriptions of play's.

Some information on the kabuki tour of 1928 is listed here:


You could check the Japanese Wiki entries for Osanai Kaoru and Ichikawa Sadanji II for more source material:
