Noh Performance at Annual Festival in Memory of Hino

An early summer Noh play performed in memory of Hino Suketomo

Myosenji Temple is known for the only five-story pagoda found in Niigata. Within the grounds, there is a grave of Hino Suketomo, who was a court noble forced into exile on Sado and then executed. He is mentioned in the Noh chant, "Danpu," created based on "Taiheiki" (Chronicle of the Great Peace). In commemoration of Hino Suketomo, Myosenji Temple puts on a Noh performance at its annual festival, "In Memory of Hino" on the 3rd of July, the anniversary of his death. At this event, Noh and Kyogen performances are dedicated in the tatami-mat floored main hall with the background of an old pine tree.
