Noh is commonly thought as "boredom and boring", but in the Muromachi era the common people watched and enjoyed in the shrines and temples' premises.
As a result of becoming a samurai 's favorite entertainment, it became a distance from the common people as it became a supporter of time general Yoshimitsu Ashikaga Yoshimitsu.
And after the end of the Edo period, the opportunity to touch the eyes of the general public increased to the Meiji era, but the impression of "difficult escape plays" which is hard to understand for those who first saw it has become established.
However, if you understand the meaning of talks and movement, Noh is an attractive and interesting play.
