Noh is generally thought as "boredom and boring", but in the Muromachi era, common people watched and enjoyed in shrines and temples' premises.

Yoshimitsu Ashiki became a supporter at the time, and it became a samurai 's favorite entertainment, and as a result, distance is made from common people.
And after the end of the Edo period, the opportunity to come into contact with the eyes of the general public has increased in the Meiji era, but the impression of "difficult escape plays" which is difficult to understand for those who first saw it has become established.
However, if you understand the meaning of the talk and movement, Noh is an attractive and interesting play.

In the Kamakura Noh stage, we will first explain it so that we can enjoy it for the first time. At the time of the performance, prepared with subtitles of English translation and modern Japanese translation which chewed and spoken lines spoken as "songs (songs)". By projecting on monitors installed in three places inside the hall, Nohgaku performance is felt with the familiar ease.
