Where should I go to see Noh theatre?

Norman Norman, Lived in Japan

The easiest place to see the Noh at the Nougakudo theater. If you are staying in Tokyo, then you can see at the National Noh Theatre. The National Noh Theatre is located at the center of Tokyo, so it is very convenient to get there. You can check the information here: http://www.ntj.jac.go.jp/eng...
