Yamamoto Noh Theater

Experience one of the world's oldest theatrical forms – Noh – at the oldest operational theatre of its kind in Osaka. Opt for the "Kamigata Night” programme to acquaint yourself with all of Kansai Region's traditional performing arts, such as the famed Kabuki, Bunraku Puppet Theatre, Rakugo, and, of course, Noh. The stylish theatre hosts shows in both English and Japanese (the latter are often accompanied by explanatory materials in English, Chinese and Korean), and offers visitors a unique opportunity to attend workshops conducted by professional artists.
