Commonly known as "Enpaku," the Tsubouchi Memorial Theater Museum, Waseda University is one of only a handful of museums worldwide dedicated solely to theatre. It was founded in 1928 as a tribute to Shoyo Tsubouchi, an author, playwright, and the forefather of modern Japanese theater. Located on the main campus of Waseda University, the museum displays costumes, posters, and other items covering all facets of the performing arts, both Japanese and international.
As well as a permanent collection, the museum hosts a rotating roster of temporary exhibits, which include film screenings and workshops. Admission is free, but if you want to join an event, it's sometimes necessary to reserve a spot online ahead of your visit to avoid missing out.
