Kita Noh Theatre 十四世喜多六平太記念能楽堂

4-6-9 Kami-Osaki, Shinagawa-ku

Experience Japan's oldest dramatic arts first hand at the Kita Noh Theatre

Highly trained actors and musicians work together to recreate the supernatural and magical stories of classic Noh dramas. Filled with ghosts, demons, and monsters, Noh is a strictly codified discipline that illustrates the lives of Japanese people between the 12th and 16th centuries. Despite the esoteric nature of the art, fans of music and dance will surely find the ethereal combination of sound and movement mesmerizing.

The Kita Noh Theatre is the Tokyo home of a school of performance called Kita-ryu Noh. As such the company focuses on promoting the achievements of its late leader Kita Roppeita, who is known as the dominant figure in Noh throughout the last two centuries.
