Opened in 1966, the National Theatre of Japan is currently celebrating 50 years of preserving and furthering the nation's traditional performing arts. Part of that anniversary observance, this show at Nihonbashi's Mitsui Museum seeks to get to the bottom of the classical Japanese aesthetic through displays of various items and artworks related to arts like noh, kabuki, gagaku (imperial court music) and literature. Admire masks, costumes, paintings and other precious materials, and learn about everything from kabuki classics to folk performances and the living arts of the Ryukyu Kingdom.
