Kanazawa Noh Museum

 

 

 

Noh (a major form of classic Japanese musical drama) of the Hosho School has been promoted among people in Kanazawa since the Edo period. Kaga Hosho, which is originated in Kanazawa, tells that Kanazawa is a prosperous ground of Noh Theater. The Kanazawa Noh Museum introduces the structure of Noh Theater with an actual stage reproducing Noh play. Besides, the museum exhibits Kaga Hosho's precious Noh masks and costumes handed down over generations.
