Johakyu is a term originating in Noh Theatre. In theatre, music, and literature, johakyu encapsulates the idea, in simplest terms, of a beginning, middle and end.

When combined with the basic idea of 'beginning, middle, end', it provides a sense of tension or stress beginning and building to a moment when the tension breaks into action, the resolution of which brings us to the end.

The structure of Jo-ha-kyū is derived from this trajectory, with the whole piece building throughout, rather than a more traditional arc shape.

The term 'Netori' can mean a warm-up, or a tune-up, and functions as a prelude, introducing snippets of material which will be heard later in some form.
