YOKOHAMA ART SPOT FILE

Plenty of downtown atmosphere! Popular area Noge touches popular entertainment
Yokohama bustle

The town of Yokohama, which once used to be crowded with vaudeville and theaters, was always lively. With the desire to carry on that culture and the voice that "the power of laughter will revitalize the town," "Yokohama Niwaiwaza" was born in 2002 in Noge, a specialty museum for popular performing arts. Have you ever visited a valuable place where you can get close to popular performing arts such as rakugo, manzai, and street performance?

Currently, the second generation director is Master Katsura Kamaru from Yokohama. The memorial photo spot on the 2nd floor, where the director Utamaru's panel is installed, is popular with people of all ages. You can rent a happi coat or a fan, so please take this one as a commemoration.

The main entertainment hall is on the 3rd and 4th floors. The atmosphere of popular performing arts such as red and white lanterns and sash seats that create a feeling of occupancyThe created space expands.

There is also beer and sake, and it is also popular here that you can bring food and drinks to the hall and enjoy the performance while having a drink at "Yokohama Nigiwaiza!" (Drinks may not be available depending on the performance).

I took a special look at the stage and the backstage, so I will introduce a little bit!

This is the actual stage. Because the craftsmen are so amazing, I feel like I'm drawn in and it feels very close... It's wider than I expected.

And finally infiltrate behind the scenes!

Do you know what's going on here? Actually, it's a drum set up on the stage sleeves that informs the opening. The sound of the drum, which informs customers who are taking a break in the foyer or toilet in front of the entertainment hall, "It's about to begin~!" is being played by the undercards here.

Also on the stage sleeves, we are preparing for a baby accompaniment to liven up when the 噙家 appears. With the live musical accompaniment played in this way, Mr. Masaya appeared on the stage! It's a stylish production that you can feel when you are in the "Yoseki".

We also took a look at the dressing room area. In what kind of space are the performers waiting for a turn?

In the corridor of the dressing room is a storybook. It's written with a handwriting as "Rakuro Tachiboku". How, the performers have been writing the "Neta" of the performance since the opening. On the day of the event, the performers will look at "who played what and when" and so on. The performers on this day also carefully checked their previous stories.

There are also such things in the corridor.
