Introduction of the Kaguradan/
Ato Kagura is characterized by incorporating jujutsu techniques into kagura. It has been handed down from parents to children and from children to grandchildren by oral tradition until today. We believe that our mission is to pass on the Kagura model of the Juni Jingi that we have inherited to future generations without changing it. It was designated as an intangible folk cultural asset of Hiroshima prefecture in Showa 40.
