Local folk performing arts from the Tsugaruishi area of Miyako City will come together for this performance.
Please enjoy performances of Tsugaruishi Sansa, Tsugaruishi-Shinmachi Dai-Kagura, Neizawa Kenbai Sword Dance, and Norinowaki Shishimai (Lion Dance), with specially-created Sakae-Tori Taiko and Akamae Ondo. All are folk performing arts rooted in the area. Every year, Tsugaruishi’s local folk performing arts accompany the portable shrine at the Inari Shrine (Anba-sama) festival on August 16. This area is known for “Nambu Hana-Magari (nose-curved)” salmon, and people dance around the neighborhood praying for a rich salmon catch and a bountiful fall harvest.
