Takigi O-Noh

Takigi O-Noh (薪御能) is an outdoor performance of Noh – the elaborate traditional Japanese dramatic art – illuminated by the light of bonfires.

The practice of Takigi Noh is performed at temples throughout Japan. However, it is thought to have originated at this location (Kofukuji temple) in the year 869.

The actors wear elaborate costumes and cover their faces with lacquer coated wooden masks.

As seats are reserved, it’s not free as most festivals are in Japan. A ticket for a single day is 3,500 yen.
