A moment to face your spirit on the Kamakura Noh stage

(Please note that this page was created using Google's automatic translation service and understand that because of this, its translation may not necessarily be accurate.)

The first Kamakura Noh stage. From Kamakura, transfer to the Enoden and get off at Hase Station. A very fashionable cityscape awaited me.
Japanese confectionery shops, fashionable restaurants, artist-style shops, folk craft shops, and everything else you can see is fresh. After walking about 7 minutes from the station, we arrived at the Kamakura Noh stage.

The Kamakura Noh stage, built 50 years ago, in a residential area.
Such a place like this!
I was excited, and when I entered, I was able to see the stage, which was quiet and quiet, but I felt mysterious.

This time, "Knowledge about Noh for the citizens". There was a “Noh pre-talk” by Kenta Nakamori, so I was able to study Noh very easily.
Noh history and stories. Slow movement, screaming belly, dignified beauty. I felt with my body a gesture that only Japanese people can express.

Especially impressive was the "Kamimai" at "Yumihachiman". As I was watching, I was drawn in more and more.
Impressed to raise in a certain rhythm. I was once again impressed by the splendor of Japanese culture. A moment to face your spirit on the Kamakura Noh stage

We value each moment and live while feeling the "pause". When I saw Noh, I felt that I was able to face my spirit.
Thank you for a good start of 2019.
