Trial lesson on a Noh stage in a quiet residential area.
Morimoto Noh Butai offers Noh trial lessons onstage, one of Japan's most well-known classical performing arts. Not only will you get to actually go up on stage and experience the world of Noh, but you will also get to touch Noh masks and other items that you would normally never be able to see up close, and also to try on these outfits yourself.
Why not experience Noh, an art with a history of 650 years?
Noh lessons are taught by Tetsurō Morimoto, a Noh performer of the Kanze school and holder of the Comprehensive Designation of Important Intangible Cultural Asset.
