Chuson-ji Temple Takigi Noh

中尊寺 薪能(平泉町)

On August 14, there is an evening performance of noh and kyogen plays on the 160-year-old outdoor noh stage at Hakusan Shrine, Chuson-ji. According to German architect Bruno Taut, the stage “left the greatest impression [on him] among all the sights at Chuson-ji, for its simple yet refined structure.”

First, a lighting ceremony is held, and at 5 p.m., noh and kyogen plays are performed by actors of the Kita school. Enjoy the subtle and profound atmosphere on the stage lit by bonfires, which elegantly add color to a summer night in Japan’s Deep East. Two noh plays and one kyogen play are performed, with different programs every year. There are some aficionados who have been coming to the show every summer for decades. The show ends at around 7:40 p.m.
