Relations with Kabuki

kabuki colors

Makunouchi website’s main colors are based on the Kabuki theater’s
backdrop curtain, called “Jōshiki Maku” (定式幕).
The colors of the curtain varies depending on the houses, for this site we are based on the House of Ichimura’s (市村座) colors, which is also used in the Tokyo’s National Theater and Osaka’s Shin Kabukiza.
