Nagoya Noh Theater

名古屋能楽堂

Nagoya Noh Theater is located close to the main entrance to Nagoya Castle. The impressive, modern hall was completed in 1997 and houses a 630-seat theater with a traditional Noh stage made from hinoki (Japanese cypress) wood cut from the nearby Kiso area in Gifu Prefecture. This stage is the largest Noh stage in Japan.

The audience can better understand what is going on onstage by using specially-supplied wireless headsets.

Nagoya Noh Theater also has a restaurant/cafe and a small, permanent museum dedicated to Japanese Noh drama.
