As I wanted to see Noh(first time) and Kyogen(second time) play, I bought a cheap ticket for trainees play. I recognized their efforts but there were surely difference between their and senior famous actors' performances. Anyway that was a good experience. There is a restaurant...More

I saw a Noh performance last September in Tokyo at Hosho-Nohgakudo. It was great that they had tablets available with English guidance for the play. It made it easy to understand what was going on, so I definitely recommend using the tablet to follow the...More

This venue is absolutely elegant - one of those few places that you step into and realize that it's been built with loving care. I was here for the April 5 performance of Kurama Tengu, and could not have been more impressed. I had anticipated...More

Our group expected Noh theatre to be subtle and understated. We also expected Noh masks, dancing, and taiko drumming. The theatre itself has seen far better days. The pink carpet is threadbare and stained, as are the very compact seats. The center of the main...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
