Kamase Nosonbutai Tokushima Pref

Awa Ningyo-joruri puppet play in Nosonbutai theater

This is one of the new theaters in the prefecture, which was rebuilt in 1991. The stage is equipped with Bucho and Tayuza, both of which are very traditional puppet play systems since the Edo era (1603-1867 A.D.). Bucho is a wooden lattice curtain which opens up vertically and Tayuza is an additional upper stage.
