  1. Overview
  2. Fact Sheet

Inu-Oh was a real-life Sarugaku Noh performer who enjoyed great success in 14th century Japan. Nowadays he is unknown because there are very few documents about his life that have survived. Today, almost 600 years later, this "Inu-Oh"project, full of music and dance sequences, portrays a tale of friendship between the legendary Inu-Oh and a Biwa player he befriended.
