Visit the National Noh Theatre

Tokyo, Japan

If you truly want a long-lasting theater experience, this is your place. Actors use two types of performance art called Noh (meaning ‘skill’ or ‘talent) and Kyogen, which UNESCO has deemed Intangible Cultural Property. It is a traditional Japanese musical drama that can potentially last all day long. Founded in 1966, it became the National Noh Theater in 1983. The stage is made of wood: 400 year old bishu-hinoki cypress tress and a backdrop decorated with pine. Another cool feature is the personal subtitling system for each seat.

Why is it bucket list worthy?

This theater is home to one of the most unique and traditional performances you can get.
