Translated from Japanese by

Noh, which was made in the early Muromachi period (1603-1968) and was made with saruraku as the prototype, is a valuable Traditional Japanese Performing Art that is still performed. Since the beginning of the life, it has been protected by the shogunate and daimei, and has developed as a "martial arts of samurai".
Okura Shukokan houses many "Noh masks" of the Inshu (Tottori domain) Ikeda family old warehouse and "Noh costume" of the Ikeda family old warehouse of Bikan (Okayama domain), and you can see the aspect of Noh love in daimyo family in the middle and late Edo period.
In this exhibition, we will exhibit a group of works that pay attention to autumn colors that show the sign of autumn among these Noh collections. Focusing on noh costumes, which are also called "treasure troves of design" due to the diverse combination of colors and patterns, the exhibition will also feature Noh masks and touch on popular songs set in autumn. Enjoy the world of Noh and Yugen through our Noh collection.
