he banners hanging out in front of the theatre are done up in a distinctive font called kanteiryu, which is the style of calligraphy that has been used for kabuki since the middle of the Edo period. You can even have your name inscribed on senjyafuda (slips of paper posted on shrine pillars by pilgrims) using this font. Have a look through the samples, choose the design and size that you like, and it will all be ready in about two hours. The samples on display are done in the font used for yose (music hall and vaudeville) but you can special order the kanteiryu font. Prices vary depending on the size of the senjyafuda, but the average order costs ¥1,050 for a set of 27. They will even transliterate foreign names into kanji for you, making for the perfect souvenir.
