the Cities / Town / Village on the Sanriku Coast
The Sanriku Area boasts a naturally beautiful sawtooth coastline. Since ancient times, local people have lived in a beautiful, rich and harsh natural environment. In their daily lives, they offer prayers to an invisible power with a sense of both gratitude and awe toward nature. These prayers are the seeds that have evolved into Matsuri -festivals- and have given rise to Geinoh -folk performing arts-.
Geinoh is an integral part of their lives.
In its long history, Geinoh has been handed down from generation to generation. Sanriku has as many different Geinoh as there are villages.
