Overview

Enjoy experiencing Noh chanting and dancing on real Noh stage by professional Noh player's teaching in the modern building of Tessenkai which is located in Aoyama, Minato ward Tokyo. Tessenkai is an important group of Kanze school in Noh world in Japan. They conduct Noh experience program periodically to spread its Noh culture in Japan.

What to Expect

Professional Noh players teach you attentively about the costumes, masks, stage constructions, the particular movements of Noh play, chants and other all of relevant to Noh play in two hours. This is a very special and exciting experience if you want to know Japanese cultures more deeply. Noh( Noh-gaku is a correct word) play was designated as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2008. After the tour, let's take a lunch nearby this venue. I recommend a bowl of vinegared rice topped with slices of fresh fish at the Japanese restaurant that is a very popular restaurant among an office worker around.

“ Amazing day in Tokyo with Yoshito ”

I can't begin to describe what an incredible first day in Tokyo we had with Yoshito! We are a family of five (3 young adult children) and Yoshi was amazing at putting together an itinerary that was interesting for us all. Yoshi is very knowledgeable, has excellent English and really enjoys guiding. We stopped for lunch at a delicious sushi spot too! He helped us navigate the subway to get places (which is both easy and fun) and was a source of much Japanese cultural and historical information. We all had a great day and couldn't have done half of what we did without Yoshito. Such a fun day! Thank you Yoshi!!

Yoshito:

Hi Nora, Wow! I got a wonderful review of the tour of me. Thank you very very much for saying such a comment. I also had a great day with you and your happy family. Hope we meet up with you again the other day in Japan. Thank you Nora and 'sayonara' see you someday. Please give my best regards to your best husband Scott, and best children, Ian, Will, and Tara. Yoshi.

“ Great person and an amazing guide. ”

Yoshito is a great person and an amazing guide. Pre-event communication was clear and Yoshito was very accommodating. During the event, it felt like Yoshito was part of the team and all of our guests valued his support. Should we return to Japan and need a guide, we'll definitely book with Triplelights and Yoshito. Thanks for all of your help Yoshito, the event would not have been a success without it.

Yoshito:

Dear Laurence and Daniel, Thank you very much for the most superb review. I’m very very happy to hear your message. I’m also willingly to help you all if you would come to Japan again. Sincerely yours
