On July 15th, there is a race that begins at Kushida Jinja at 4:59am Then there is a 5km race, and finally, a Noh performance to end the festivities. Does anyone know at what time that would be? I will be up watching the races and hopefully, the Noh performances, but I would like to go someplace afterwards and would like to know about what time I can get started.

What is the name of the event, and which Kushida Jinja are you referring to? Based on your username I'm guessing the one in Fukuoka.

Provided it's the one in Fukuoka, the Noh performance starts at 6:00 AM.

It is the festival that is held early in the morning, starts at 4:55 AM.
I suppose you can't see the first ceremony inside of the shrine because it's hard to get ticket. But it's easy to see the race on streets. I used to see them start dashing at near the shrine. It's exciting.
Here is website written in English.

Sorry. Ifve never seen Shizume Noh.

Thanks everyone.
I only want to see the races. I figured that I wouldn't get tickets to the perfomance inside the shrine. I'm planning a day trip to someplace else (not sure where) and was hoping that the festivities would be over by 10. And it looks like they will from website AK gave.
