In Showa 2, because Osaka Museum was moved, this Noh stage was also moved to Osaka Tenmangu Shrine. And in Showa 56, at the time of Showa Large Construction of Sumiyoshi Shrine, this Noh Stage was inherited from Tenmangu, then it was moved and rebuilt in Sumiyoshi Shrine. The roof was gabled and coppery. Used woods were all-cypress and the Noh stage is built in Japanese traditional style. The designer is Youkichi Okazaki, Osaka Prefecture assitant engineer, and the construction supervisor is Setsu Inoue, and leader is Tyouemon Shiga from Kyoto.
