The area
Neighborhood: Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.

Nohgakudo is a building where you can enjoy the performance of traditional Japanese performing arts, Noh.
Nohgakudo used to be outdoors, but it's now covered by a building for protection. So Nohgakudo look a bit strange as there is a building inside of building.
It is said that a pinetree is always drawn on the stage because that pinetrees are considered to be the god's yorishiro (place for stopping by.) and that the Noh is the art of offering to the god.
In the tour, we learned from Noh actors on the stage and worked on a simple play as a pair. The play's title is "Tsuchigumo", a spirit of an elder spider, we could use thier props such as a spider web. That was fantastic experience.
