Where to buy kabuki face paint/make up in Tokyo?

1 answer

Hi,

I'm currently staying in Tokyo and I'm a fan of Kabuki theatre. One thing I'd love to buy is some of the face paint/make up that Kabuki actors use.

I've tried google searches to try and find a shop that sells it, but to no avail.

Can anyone direct me to a somewhere I can buy it? If indeed, I can buy it.

Thanks in advance.

I'm also looking for kabuki makeup - specifically the white face makeup called Oshiroi (?) I haven't hit the pavement yet but I suspect you might be able to pick some up near Kabuki-za. Otherwise I intend to hunt down a shop that sells Mitsuyoshi makeup, which is the only brand/hint I've uncovered so far.
