From his position as a professional Noh performer, Ichinokai’s representative director Keigo Suzuki widely popularizes the traditional Japanese performing art of Noh, both in Japan and overseas, through Noh performances and events designed to promote and educate. The aim is to pass down Noh culture, and promote culture and academic study, education, welfare, and regional/community revitalization through Noh.
