  • Experience Kagura, a traditional art form with a history of over 1000 years.
  • Through interacting with locals while wearing traditional costumes and playing instruments, you can immerse yourself deeply in the local culture.
  • Experience the authentic, traditional lifestyle of Japan, away from typical tourist spots.


Tsunoyama Kagura is a traditional dance offered to the gods for over 1000 years, praying for a rich harvest and well-being.

While Kagura is a ritual dedicated to the gods, the words imply inviting them to play together. This tradition has evolved into the local festivals we see today.

To preserve this cultural heritage, the Tsunoyama Traditional Kagura Preservation Society engages in various activities. In this interactive experience, held within a local shrine, participants can watch Kagura performances on a genuine stage, and learn the dance and how to play the instruments from society members.

Enjoy an evening reminiscent of ancient times, where gods and people play together.
