Next, would like to recommend a festival in Kyoto, called Gion Shrine’s Kagura.
“Gion Shrine’s Kagura” is held as an annual festival of Yasaka Shrine in Miyama-cho, Nantan City.
It is held as a performing arts festival in which people dressed in masks such as Tengu, Oni, Hyokko, etc.
They would perform three songs of “Kagura”, “Sangiri”, and “Nigimakura”.
This festival is performed as a wish so that crops are abundant.
