The 68th Kyoto Takigi Noh Performance


Kyoto's Takigi Noh theatre performances are one of the city's most popular events which is held in early summer. This performance was started in 1950 as a joint program of Kyoto City and Kyoto Nohgaku Association. In the early evening when the torch is started to lit, the vermillion lacquered Heian shrine pavilions will also lit-up, and the Noh stage will appear out of the gloom. This is a truly fantastic moment. On both days, three major Noh schools (Kanze, Kongo and Okura) will perform these slow-moving, mysterious plays on a special fire-lit, outdoor stage set up in Heian Shrine.
