Kanazawa Noh Museum

Kanazawa Noh MuseumKanazawa Noh Museum is a museum about "Noh" (Japanese traditional masked dance-drama), and is located to the west of Kenrokuen garden.

People in Kanazawa had enjoyed watching Noh as common events in Edo Period (the 17-19th centuries).
They had been played on the stage in shrines and temples.
So Kanazawa is still main city of Noh in Japan.

This museum was opened in 2006 as Japan's first Noh museum.
We can see the model of stage with moving image.
And stage costumes, masks and some other devices are displayed.
