I can guide you to any tourist sites in Japan as a national tour guide if you pay more transportation fee than 8,000 JPY for me. Especially, Nara and Kyoto are my favorites cities I had visited many times and Kagoshima is my wife's hometown.

You don't need to prepare anything. They lend Japanese socks ( tabi in Japanese ), folding fan ( ogi in Japanese ) and text papers of Noh-gaku(in Japanese sorry). Experience fee ( 3,000 JPY ) is included in my guide fee to pay it to Tessennkai beforehand. The date is fixed throughout the year. This Noh experience starts punctually at 10:00 am, so we should arrive at the venue 30 minutes before 10:00 am. Meeting time would be adjusted later after I get your email message.
