Overview

Visitors to the National Noh Theater can see traditional kyogen as well as noh dramas. There are performances about 16 days out of the month, and the repertoire changes about four or five times. Because the singing of these esoteric art forms can be difficult to understand (even for those who speak Japanese fluently) theater-goers are provided with a one-page explanation of the story in English. To really appreciate Noh, it is advisable to read a little about it before going. The theater itself has a seating capacity of 591, and there is a restaurant that seats 104 and serves light refreshments at reasonable prices on-site. The theater is closed on Mondays.
