It is recognized as one of Japan's three major classical theaters along with noh and bunraku, and has been named as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. Kabuki is an art form rich in showmanship. It involves elaborately designed costumes.

    For all of its recorded history, Japan has been headed, in one form or another, by an emperor or tenno (天皇), in an Imperial line that has allegedly remained unbroken from prehistory ( BC, by Japanese mythology) to the present day. While the emperor ruled absolutely in early Japanese history, the power of the Imperial household declined. Japan’s most celebrated work of fiction, The Tale of Genji, has been continuously read from the time it appeared in the eleventh-century to the present day and provides a perfect case study for exploring various book formats over the centuries in Japan.
