Overview
More
The Yokohama Noh Theater's stage was built in 1875 for the estate of Maeda Nariyasu, former lord of the Kaga domain, in the Negishi district of Tokyo. It was moved to the estate of Matsudaira Yorinaga in the Somei district of Tokyo in 1919, where it was known as the Somei Noh Stage. It was dismantled in 1965 and its components placed in storage. The stage has now been restored using the original components. It is unusual in that the kagamiita or mirror board behind the main stage has plum blossoms as well as the conventional single pine tree painted on it. These plum blossoms are thought to be a reference to the plum-blossom crest of Sugiwara no Michizane, ancestor of the Maeda clan. On May 20, 1996, the city of Yokohama designated the stage as a Tangible Cultural Property.
