The 28th “Yozakura-noh” which will be performed in Bonfire Light at the Yasukuni Shrine in April 2020 has become one of the seasonal events that many people look forward to every year.

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.
