A place where you can easily meet the traditional culture that Japan is proud of
Yokohama Noh Theater
"Yokohama Noh Theater" is located on a hill overlooking the Minato Mirai area of Yokohama, and is located in a corner of Kamonyama Park, which is also known as a famous place for cherry blossoms in the spring. It is located in a very quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and it is also attractive to enjoy a seasonal walk, such as the colorful trees and cherry blossom petals fluttering before heading to the venue.
The main stage of "Yokohama Noh Theater" is a restoration of the Noh stage, which has long been popular as the former Somei Noh stage. This stage was built in 1875 at the former Kaga feudal lord Maeda Nariyasu's residence in Negishi, Tokyo, and later relocated to Yorinaga Matsudaira's residence in Somei, Tokyo in 1965. Has been widely used. It is the oldest existing Noh stage in the Kanto region, the eighth oldest in Japan, and has been designated as a cultural property of Yokohama City because it is valuable in the history of architecture and Noh.
In front of the main stagePlease pay attention to the mirror plate that you can see! Generally, it seems that many of them have one "Oimatsu" drawn on them, but the mirror plate of Yokohama Noh Theater is a little different, isn't it? "Plum" and "Nesasa" are drawn along with "Old Matsu". This seems to be a very rare thing. There is also a story about why "ume" is ... This is related to the plum of Sugawara no Michizane, the founder of the Maeda clan.
In spite of such a historical place, there are plenty of original projects that beginners who tend to think "Noh and madness seem difficult" can enjoy. "Yokohama Kyogen-do" where you can enjoy two Kyogen songs with explanations for only 2,000 yen, Kyogen workshops for children, and a free guided facility tour held once a month are also popular.
We would like to introduce a little bit of the "barrier-free Noh" that is held once a year when you can hear the footsteps of spring, which is popular among the original performances! As the name suggests, "barrier-free Noh" It is a performance where people with and without disabilities can share the same time and enjoy Noh and Kyogen together.
Various support such as admission tickets and pamphlets with Braille, tactile drawings showing the arrangement of Noh stages, sign language / computer interpreters, free of charge for one assistant, and sub-audio are available. In addition, consider the selection of programsThe point is that the time is not too long, and the composition is interesting and well-balanced just by listening and watching!
A replica corner of "Noh mask" used in the performance of the day is also prepared outside the hall, and you can actually touch it to check the shape, size, and feel.
The hall also has a space for wheelchairs.
A gentle, warm and enjoyable day where everyone can come together and experience traditional Japanese culture. Even beginners can appreciate it without hesitation because it comes with detailed explanations. "It seems difficult to say Noh and madness ..." The world of "barrier-free" in the true sense is spreading here, which will release such anxiety. By all means, please come visit us once a year for a performance unique to the Yokohama Noh Theater.
