This theater was rebuilt in 1955 as the theater for the Kita-ryu School, a prestigious Noh school that has been active since the Edo period. Before that, the stage was destroyed by the great Kanto earthquake of 1923 and a second time Destroyed in the great air raid on Tokyo in 1945 after it had already been rebuilt once.
Highly skilled actors and musicians work together to recreate the supernatural and magical stories of the classic Noh dramas. Filled with spirits, demons, and monsters, Noh is a strictly codified discipline that depicts the life of the Japanese between the 12th and 16th centuries. Magnificent robes and masks make this experience something very special.
The traditional pieces listed are in Japanese, but you will receive a detailed summary in English to read in advance, as well as further information about the Noh, so that you can simply enjoy the theater visit perfectly prepared.
This main dance stage serves as the performance stage for Noh and Kyogen narratives at the Kita Noh Theatre. The stage area covers just under 6 meters by 6 meters but allows for a great range of motion to be viewed from the seats in the gallery. It’s built in the traditional outdoor style but allows visitors more comfort indoors.
When the Kita Noh Theater was reconstructed in 1955, the painter Takashi Esaki and Ao Maeda took care of the symbolic pine panel and painting. The thick roots and branches symbolize the strength and solidity of Kita-style samurai art while instilling a sense of simplicity and spirit.
The Kita noh Theatre seating gallery allows for two levels of seating which can accommodate 385 people. Thanks to the angle and the nature of Noh and Kyogen performances it ensures that no matter where you sit that you’re sure to enjoy the show.
