More about Cho! Kabuki

Born in the heart of Kabukicho, a neighborhood teeming with diversity, Cho! Kabuki is a marvelous mashup party the likes of which you've never seen. Organized by DJ Mineoka, whose PariPism party events were wildly popular from 2016 to 2018, Cho!Kabuki will bring together foreigners, members of the LGBT community, drag queens, fans of body mod and ishokuhada (different colored skin) fashion, one-eyed kigurumi girls, cosplayers and many more together for an original party event you can only experience in Shinjuku.

Cho! Kabuki is a new entertainment event where photogenic performers dance to music played by top DJs spinning an exciting mix of anime songs, idol songs, J-pop and more. You'll be able to meet an eclectic cast of "party people" from every corner of the district on the space-themed dance floor of WARP Shinjuku.

Since the first Cho! Kabuki coincides with Halloween, there will be specially decorated photo booths and even champagne towers, not to mention an area where you can try on art makeup to liven up your Halloween experience!

The party begins in the afternoon at 15:00 and continues until 20:00, opening up your evening for other things (if you still have energy left!). You may have an image of Kabukicho being a bit "scary" at night, but since this event starts in the daytime, you have nothing to worry about. It's an all-ages party and students are welcome to attend!
