NOH COSTUME DRESS-UP

Kanazawa Noh Museum

During Japan’s feudal era, the ruling daimyo of the Kaga region, the Maedas, encouraged the common folk to enjoy Noh, the theatre of the samurai class, hoping to further develop Kaga culture. For that reason, Kaga’s Nohgaku developed into “Kaga Hosho.”

The Kanazawa Noh Museum collects and displays works of art and historical documents related to Nohgaku, and especially Kaga Hosho. Each display includes explanations in English. An English-speaking volunteer guide will assist your experience wearing Noh costumes and instruments.

Learn to play the taiko drum or Japanese flute in the style of Noh. Try on Noh attire (limited availability) with a volunteer guide to assist you. Play Japanese musical instruments (drums and Noh flute). No reservations required.
