| Being called a city of tradition and history, Kanazawa is
well-known for its Noh drama.
Since the "Hosho school" is very popular here, and one of the old regional
names in Ishikawa prefecture was "kaga", the name "Kaga Hosho" is well-known
Noh performers include a wide variety of people, and recitals are held by the Kanazawa Nohgakukai every month. Besides these there are dozens of other recitals held every year. There is a series of one hour performances including a Noh play and a Kyogen, comedic interlude, offered every Saturday evening during the summer months.
The stage is built completely of Japanese cypress with a roof similar to Shinto shrine.
Noh actors' performances are held on the highly polished main stage (butai) before the old pine tree painted on the mirror board (kagamiita).
