Yamane Kagura Preservation Society

Yamane Kagura is a ritual dance greatly influenced by the “way of trial and practice” of the Yamabushi mountain monks. As some old kagura props found in 1664 revealed, the dance might have been passed down from the former Morioka Domain so it was originally called “Noda Kagura” before it was known as “Yamane Kagura”.
