Imperial Theater (aka Teigeki) in the Marunouchi district is Japan's first Western-style theater dating from 1911. The original building was a white-walled, 5-story Renaissance architecture with 1,700 seats and an orchestra box. The theater gained popularity in Tokyo along with Mitsukoshi, Japan's first department store, the phrase “Today I go to Teigeki, tomorrow I will go to Mitsukoshi,” became a catch line in 1910s.

The current building, erected in 1966 with a capacity of 1,900 seat and 4 stage elevators, is a venue for major commercial plays and musicals, which marked history including "Gone with the Wind", "My Fair Lady" and "Miss Saigon". The theater is operated by Toho, a major film distribution company.

Grand theatre in the middle of the glitzy Ginza district. Only big productions here. May be difficult to get same-day tickets.
