Shodoshima Outdoor Kabuki Stage where an outdoor kabuki stage on which local kabuki plays have been performed since the Edo Period. Nakayama Noson Kabuki was brought back from Osaka by islanders with a painting of some famous kabuki scenes, and kabuki costumes in order to offer them to the local shrine. As a result Kabuki became popular on Shodoshima island. Consequently some traveling kabuki groups were invited to the island. Eventually Shodoshima islanders started to perform of their own. Nakayama theater was registered as an important tangible folk-cultural property.
