Introduction of the Kaguradan/
Around 1830, kagura was performed in the Morogi district, and it was dedicated at the autumn festival as a traditional performing art. The name was also changed from the Maiko Fire Group to the Youth Association, Kyoai Maiko Group, and Moroki Local Entertainment Preservation Association, and for a long time, it has been inherited from Juni Jingu Kagura and fireworks (blowfire). It was certified as an Important Intangible Cultural Property by Hiroshima City in 2004, and we hold a children's kagura class based on dedication kagura, and perform at the Autumn Festival and other regional events.
