Nanori (名ノリ)

The nanori, or “name-saying,” is the part or shōdan of a Noh or Kyōgen play in which the performers introduce themselves and offer an explanation of the setting. In the Noh play Tōboku, after the entering waki sings a short vocal known as a shidai he says, “I am the monk travelling from the east. I still am not in sight of the capital, to which I decided to travel this spring,” which is known as the nanori.
