It is a room behind the Noh stage where the performers prepare. In many cases, Japanese-style rooms which has a lot of tatami is often used as a gakuya, each room is assigned to each of Shite, Waki, Kyougen and hayashi musicans. In principle, there are no private rooms, and the sliding doors are left open so that you can see what each room looks like. The room is equipped with a yucha-tea, the performor(Shite, Waki, Kyougen) room is putted a shelf of costumes and props and the hayashi musicians room is made charcoal fine for roasting the leather of Otsudumi-large drum. The room closest to the Kagami-noma room is often referred to as the “costume room” and if often used by people who change their costumes as Shite performer. Also, in one corner of the Gakuya room, there is a space for making Noh props, in here, we equip a lot of materials such as bamboo skeletons. The gakuya room is extremely orderly and the seating position is naturally determined according to the age and position of the performer.
