Kyoto Takigi Noh at Heian Shrine in Kyoto features traditional noh theater performances lit by burning torches.
Noh, which is the most ancient form of musical theater in Japan, is performed in the evening darkness amid the illumination of the burning torches. Heian Jingu Shrine, where the stage is set up, is a famous shrine built as a partial reproduction of the palace constructed in 794, and its red torii gate at the entrance serves as a symbol of Kyoto. Many people gather to watch the Noh performances in an atmosphere evocative of the ancient capital. (*reference: JNTO)
