Noh theater in the garden - Spreading Japanese elegance from Tokyo to the world -
Experience and feel the Japanese traditional performing art of “Noh” at nighttime and daytime “Noh theater in the garden” in verdant parks in the Tokyo metropolitan area.
For two days in early spring, outdoor Noh performances will be held in the gardens of the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum. Enjoy these performances and forget about the hustle and bustle of the city. In addition to popular programs such as “Yashima” and “Kurama Tengu,” both of which portray the war hero Minamoto Yoshitsune. Hands-on programs will also offer the opportunity to touch masks, costumes and instruments. The programs will allow foreign visitors who are unfamiliar with traditional performing arts to fully enjoy Noh.
