Introduction of the Kaguradan/
Kagura was revived and formed for the first time in 30 years in Heisei 5. Currently, there are three groups that are broadly divided into activities.
(1) A group that handed down “Kamiyaguchi 12 Jingu Kagura” such as “Amano no Iwato” and “Seoni”
(2) A group that handed down “Yaguchi’s hand dance” such as “Dojo Sukui”
(3) Wadaiko team “Sho” who plays Japanese drums
We participate in local Shingu Shrine’s Autumn Festival, Yakushi Festival, Jizo Festival, Kuchida School District’s Bon Odori Festival, and Koyo Traditional Performing Arts Festival, etc., in order to pass on and spread local traditional performing arts and interact with local residents. About 50 members, from kindergarten children to working adults, are working hard.
We must convey the traditional performing arts that have been passed down in the Yaguchi area for a long time to people in the future. I would like everyone to support you warmly as well.
If you are interested in kagura or Japanese drums, please contact us once by all means. Age, gender, experience, and address do not matter, so thank you.
