Yozakura Noh at Yasukuni Shrine

Theatre, Classical
靖国神社 夜桜能

Held annually since 1992, Yasukuni's sakura season special sees traditional plays performed under the shrine's blooming cherry trees. In addition to Noh, the programme includes kyogen (comedic spoken drama) plays and maibayashi (an abbreviated style of Noh with music), with top performers like Mansai Nomura having taken to the stage in recent years. Tickets can be purchased by phone (0570 00 3337) – in Japanese only, unfortunately.
