We had long wanted to see Noh Theatre, and this is a beautiful venue, and a high quality performance. We had good seats - and there were good English translations of the performance itself. Only negative was a woman who came out at the beginning,...More

I attended Noh performances here and was so taken by them I returned again for additional, different performances. Both times there was a presentation of a comedy followed by presentation of a more serious story. The more serious presentations touched on a philosophical observation; and...More

We attended a performance that included both kyogen and noh. The kyogen was great and very entertaining. The noh was much slower paced, especially since we had already read the synopsis, but still very enjoyable. Having surtitles on the small screen in front of us...More

I saw a Noh performance last September in Tokyo at Hosho-Nohgakudo. It was great that they had tablets available with English guidance for the play. It made it easy to understand what was going on, so I definitely recommend using the tablet to follow the...More

This venue is absolutely elegant - one of those few places that you step into and realize that it's been built with loving care. I was here for the April 5 performance of Kurama Tengu, and could not have been more impressed. I had anticipated...More

Although the venue is like a house that is simple, but can simply store a variety of facilities that can be relied upon for those who do various performances such as art performances, meetings, etc. Sometimes they have their scheduled performances. If you are interested,...More

Our group expected Noh theatre to be subtle and understated. We also expected Noh masks, dancing, and taiko drumming. The theatre itself has seen far better days. The pink carpet is threadbare and stained, as are the very compact seats. The center of the main...More

Noh is the classic theater of Japan, if Kabuki is the Japanese Shakespeare then Noh is the Japanese Classic Greek Drama. The setting is beautiful, built about 20 years ago when Japan was afloat with money to showcase this form of culture which is mostly...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
