The world of Kyogen

Ozo Doctrine (Noh Performer Kyogen Style Ozo School)

Did you know that Kyogen can be learned by the general public?
Both my father and my grandfather presided over a so-called dojo called "rehearsal hall" and tried to spread Kyogen. Many people of all ages, young and old, are learning Kyogen, and I have been practicing in it since my childhood.
A world of Kyogen that is fun to watch, teach, and deepens *2 years old. First time on the Noh stage.

I've been asked, "Is Kyogen something you learn, not something you watch?" Until then, I said, "My father and grandfather were teaching," but sometimes I looked back at myself, "Why am I teaching?"
In the old days, Nobunaga Oda, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, and Ieyasu Tokugawa played Kyogen themselves, and each daimyo also learned from it. I taught Kyogen to town officials even in Ozura's house, and I also appeared in events such as Kanshin Kyogen, so there is no doubt that I had been teaching.

Kyogen has 180 songs (repertoire), but it may be limited to learn all of them and pass them on to the next generation without forgetting them. However, if you remind others of your memory, you can remember what you have learned. Also, by teaching many times, I can deeply understand the performance and the pattern is polished.Go While teaching, there are many discoveries that "Ah! Is this something like this?". Furthermore, rehearsals are performed without using a sound source, that is, the voice is kept on all day long, which leads to improvement of one's own art and vocal practice. You can say, "By teaching, you are taught."

As a private matter, I got married and moved to Nakanoshima (Tama Ward, Kawasaki City). Since it coincided with the time when my child was born, I went to visit Nakanoshima Inari Shrine, which is the Ujikami, and there was a Kaguraden there.
You can play Kyogen here.
I thought so, and when I called Miyaji, he kindly provided me with it.

Just around the time of the Great East Japan Earthquake. Many of the customers who participate in the “Kyogen LABO” that I planned independently are active in the community. Overlapping such keywords, I started to think of "region".
The word "region" has a meaning to refer to a place, but I think it also means "going to" the "ground." To cherish and enrich the place where I live now. By adjusting the environment, the circle of people will expand and it will become a city where people can live comfortably.

Furthermore, I would like to let the children who grow up there experience a lot of nature and culture. By touching the culture, the mind is opened, self-discovery, the discovery of others, and the birth and respect of individuality. Kyogen lesson started in Nakanoshima because of various reasons.
It wasn't easy to attract customers by opening the lid, but now seven students are enjoying learning Kyogen.

And again this year, there will be a dedication Kyogen by all the classroom students on Saturday, October 6th. This is the sixth time this year, and we take pride as a community-based activity. I would be happy if I could convey the humor and humor of Kyogen to many people in the area.
