Have you ever seen a Noh play ?


Japanese traditional mask play

Mar. 31 (Wed) / Apr. (Thu) / (Fri ), 2021 from 7 :00 pm

Venue : Noh Theater at Yasukuni Shrine

The 28th “Yozakura-noh” which will be performed in Bonfire Light at the Yasukuni Shrine in March 2021 has become one of the seasonal events that many people look forward to every year.

The noh-stage at Yasukuni Shrine is the oldest noh-stage made of wood in Tokyo, and this is the only noh and kyogen performance to be played under beautiful “Yozakura” (cherry blossoms at night). 

It is also a great opportunity to see the performances of the leading noh-actors who are living national treasures together with up-and-coming young noh-actors.

           ✿ Illuminated Yasukuni-Shrine is breathtakingly beautiful  ✿

  ✿ In light from a bonfire, a fantastic Noh-Stage emerges out of darkness ✿

      ✿ Japanese traditional dance with gorgeous costume on the stage!! ✿

               ✿✿✿ “Like entering a history picture scroll !!”  ✿✿✿


■Venue  depends on the day’s weather.

The performance will be held in light rain.

In the case of heavy rain, the venue will be changed to Shinjuku Cultural Center.

Information on the day is available at Teledome.
