I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.

That is good to know. I also went to a Noh mask exhibition in Sydney. The guides and guest speakers made it really interesting

Anything that promotes noh theatre gets the thumbs up. Watching top quality noh is surreal.

I like Noh masks very much! Had no experience of watching Noh performance yet.

I am in the same predicament, I like the masks and would love to see a performance one day, but it's still on my bucket list. One day, I hope!
