This traditional Noh theater is built inside the Museum's main building. It has a cedar-bark-thatched roof in the hip-and-gable style, and the stage is constructed entirely in cedar.
The kagami-ita (painted wall panel) is designed by Matsuno Hideyo, a renowned artist of Japanese painting. The theater has been built to showcase the exquisite traditional Japanese performing art Noh, and it hosts performances of different schools of Noh regularly. The stage pillars are removable, allowing the space to be used for a variety of performances, recitals and art-related and other lectures. It also has facilities for simultaneous interpretation, and can be used for international conferences and symposia.
