Yuki-no-Noh Matsuyama Daikan-Noh ゆきののう まつやまだいかんのう
Appreciate the quietness, and the subtle and profound world of Noh
Matsuyama Noh has its origin in Matsuyama clansmen’s mastery of Nogaku while Edo shift work during the reign of Tadatsune Sakai in Kanbun era (1660-)
After the Meiji Restoration, Matsuyama Noh was handed down from Samurai family to townsmen, then to a Noh association named “Shofu-sha” and registered as Prefectural Intangible Folk Cultural Asset in 1980.
Daikan Noh (annually held on the 4th Saturday of January), one of the three performances in a year, is enacted in stillness and sprinkling of snow as a memorial service for those who were involved in Noh.
After the performance, performers and audience get together around Natto soup and deepen exchanges at “Yukimi-no-Utage” [Feast of Snow-viewing].
