The 300th Anniversary of the Birth of Manzo Nomura was awarded the Grand Prize at the 77th Japan Arts Festival announced on December 26, 2022.
Believe it or not, we were making a documentary about Manzo IX Nomura and his family around this "Ancestors' Festival: The 300th Anniversary of the Birth of Manzo Nomura Hatsuzei."
We hope you will take the time to experience the world of Japan's proud traditional performing arts.

We hope that Kyogen, the Japanese tradition of laughter, will reach your hearts.
As a conclusion, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to Manzo Nomura and his family for this precious opportunity, as well as the Sasakawa Nichibutsu Foundation, and to all the people involved in the production.
