Kanazawa Noh Museum 金沢市能楽美術館

Learn about Noh, dress up in costumes, and play instruments

The Kanazawa Noh Museum welcomes visitors to immerse themselves in the world of Noh, a 700-year-old style of Japanese theater.

The museum has informative exhibitions on the history of Noh in Kanazawa, as well as a section where visitors are welcome to dress in traditional Noh costumes and masks. On Wednesdays, visitors can try playing the traditional musical instruments used in Noh performances.

The Kaga domain, which included present-day Ishikawa, invested heavily in Noh during the Edo period (1603–1867). The local Kaga-Hosho school of Noh flourished thanks to the patronage of the ruling Maeda family.
