The shogun has provided a noh theater in his castle for the people of Edo.

The noh theater began in the 14th century with performances for the Ashikaga shoguns, and the tradition was continued for 500 years supported primarily by members of the military class / samurai. This print shows the noh stage erected in the shogun’s castle in Edo (modern Tokyo).
