Experience Details
This private dining experience combines the traditional art of Noh theater with a delicious hotpot, all enjoyed inside an authentic family home. Located in Kanazawa, this Noh and Nabe Dining Experience is an intimate and unique experience held by a family who has practiced Noh for generations. Noh is one of Japan’s traditional performances and it is characterized as a form of theater that combines music, dance, and drama. Noh has been a part of Japanese culture since the 14th century and is designated an Intangible Cultural Heritage. You will experience this important cultural asset up close as Matsuda-san of the Matsuda family will perform a Noh performance in the local “Kaga Hosho” style. This will be followed by a question and answer session, plus the opportunity to see the Matsuda family’s private collection of masks and costumes for Noh performances. After the Noh performance, you will enjoy a delicious nabe hotpot in the same traditional room. Nabe is the Japanese word meaning “hotpot.” Featuring all kinds of traditional Japanese ingredients like tofu, noodles, meats, and various vegetables inside a hot broth, nabe hotpots are best enjoyed with groups of family or friends. This event is available on December 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd, as well as January 6th, 20th, and 27th.
