Omiya Takigi Noh (Noh theater by firelight)

Let the ambient sounds of nature, accompanied by singing flutes and drums, whisk you back to classical Japan as you enjoy Noh and Kyogen theater by firelight right inside the grounds of Musashi Ichinomiya Hikawa-jinja Shrine.

The Omiya Takigi Noh was first held in May 1982 in Musashi Ichinomiya Hikawa Jinja-shrine to commemorate the opening of the Tohoku and Joetsu Shinkansen lines and to promote local culture and create a new tourism attraction. This year will mark the 41st time of the event. We usually set a special Noh stage in the shrine’s precincts near the 3rd torii gate, but this year all the performances are going to be held at Buden (court music pavilion) inside the Romon tower gate.
*NO English commentary or simultaneous interpretation will be provided during the performance.

Friday, May 27 – Saturday, May 28, 2022
7 PM- 9:30 PM (Noh performance starts at 7:35 PM)
