Location 
    Noh theater classroom 2F or 3F at Umewaka Nohgaku Gakuin Kaikan
      Higashi Nakano 2-6-14, Nakano-ku, Tokyo (details below)



Allow me to introduce you to Noh as part of a tour at Umewaka Nohgaku-do, and those who attend will get an opportunity to experience dancing and chanting.

Led by certified Kanze-ryu shihan (instructor) Yoko Layer, these workshops, lectures, or classes will introduce participants to the History and conceptual aspects of Nohgaku by inviting them to explore Nohgaku’s stylized chant, movement. Participants will also be introduced to the spiritual roots of Nohgaku that has strong connections with the Shinto-ism that is deeply rooted in the Japanese people and traditions. Understanding this connection is similar to understanding the importance of Shakespeare to Western culture.

Let’s feel and experience the aesthetic world of Nohgaku together!!

You will have the chance to stand on the sacred Nohgaku stage and dance while using the stylized chant.
