Takarazuka Revue

Reviewed By zuzanc2014 - Ise, Japan

I've been a long-time fan of the Takarazuka Revue, and was happy to finally visit the original theater in Takarazuka city. I was not disappointed!
High production values and excellently trained actresses, singers and dancers guarantees that any Takarazuka show is a feast for the eyes. The theater is also a lot bigger than I thought, containing a mini-mall and an exhibition area. Plenty of chances to buy things, either Takarazuka-specific merchandise, or general cute and frilly stuff, as well as several nice cafe and restaurants in or around the theater.
Easy access from the entire greater Osaka area, although we stayed overnight in a hotel at the station. Both options work well, I think.

Nakayama-dera

Reviewed By Jeff A - Michigan

I lived just down the road from Takayama Dera for many years. It is a temple dedicated to child birth and kids. My wife and I visited it many time when she was pregnant with both our kids and my children has ceremonies performed there. We also did their Shichigosa (753) there.
The main front area is nice and there is a lovely ume (plume) garden in the back and then some nice hiking up the mountain behind the temple. We took our kids there at least 2 to 3 times a month to play and just enjoy outside.
If you live in the Osaka/Kobe are then I highly recommend this temple. If you are traveling in Japan then I would not make a special trip for it.

It is not just for gambling, but for everyone to have fun. We went here for a picnic with homemade lunch box. There is a huge picnic area, kids can play safely.

It is the lovely brick path from Takarazuka station to Takarazuka revue theatre. It is meant to be for those who are holding tickets to a play in less than a couple of hours, so that everyone's eyes are heart shaped, dreaming of fan of theirs!

Kiyoshikojin Seichoji

Reviewed By DanL917 - Tokyo, Japan

I made it a point to spend the New Year's in a different city each year, so in 15 years, it adds up. One year I chose Kobe to spend the New Year's. I had correctly guessed this was the place to go during New Year's. It's just outside Takarazuka, which in itself is a worthwhile visit but unfortunately during New Year's, the town is closed.
What makes this temple such an irresistable draw is the 1-1.5 km approach to the temple, which are lined with shops and little stores. Naturally, they were all open during New Year's week. Near the train station, many food vendors were selling festival food so you can have lunch here. I could probably do the walk to the temple in 15' but due to the New Year's crowds, the walk takes the better part of an hour, as you are elbow-to-elbow with people going in both directions.
I call this place the Daizafu of Kobe, as Daizafu was similarly crowded when I spent a New Year's in Fukuoka. If you are in Kobe for New Year's be sure to visit this temple. Takarazuka is only 30' from Kobe by local line. You transfer to another line and I believe it's the first stop.

Reviewed By Brun066 - Florence, Italy

If you are very fond of manga, the museum is worth a detour, otherwise not. Especially harms the confrontation with the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka. Anyway, it is at walking distance from Takarazuka Railways stations (both JR and Kintetsu).

主要駅から歌劇へ通じる通りに面しているお店。瀟洒な店が多くてウィンドウショッピングでも十分楽しめます。爺さんですがここだけは昔から一種独特の雰囲気を感じられる場所です。又、数少ない夫婦で一緒に行ける場所でもあります。趣味が正反対なので他には薪能くらいしか一緒に行く場所がないので、ここはコミュニケーションを70年間近くも維持出来る貴重な場所です。

I get easily tired of those huge supersized department stores. However, this department store is more like a medium size with pretty much everything you are looking for.

Enjoyed visiting this historical museum with a local family. So interesting to learn more about the area and the culture with local guide who could provide translation. Great experience!
