The site's front page offers an overview of the full contents of Noh as Intermedia, and most sections of the site are easily reachable via the drop-down menu items at the top of each page. Items under the Elements menu lead to numerous pages and sub-pages providing descriptions and examples of the formal design of Noh and its diverse layers.

The two main links under the Plays menu launch an interactive interface providing an in-depth intermedia analysis synchronized with full-length recordings of two contrasting Noh plays. The two levels of this interface (one for the entire play, and one for each section) include a button for the Guide in the upper right, which highlights the main features of the interface.
