Rural Community Stage“Noson Butai”in Tokushima

1 Feb 2022

In Tokushima, there is a lot of Noson Butai.

Noson Butai literally means a “Rural Community Stage”. Since ancient times the Japanese landscape has been dotted with Shinto shrines of all sizes. On the precincts of some of these shrines were small play houses called Noson Butai, where Kabuki or Ningyo Joruri were performed as a votive offering to the guardian gods,expressing farmers’ wishes for a rich harvest and peaceful life.
