Kagura is the Shinto theatrical dance based on some stories, performed by dancers, who dressed gorgeous costumes and expressive masks, and by musicians who play drum and pipe. It has been performed for a long ages as religious services that dedicated to the "Ujigami" - the guardian god of a particular place in the Shinto religion. And it is also performed as Shinto ceremony for praying good harvest and catch fish, and recovering illness too.
Kagura is performed every week so you can see the wonderful Kagura in Kagura-monzen-toji-mura. And depending on the day, you may be able to try wearing the Kagura costume after performance in the night. Also, there is the museum that shows Kagura costume and exhibition of Kagura history, so you can touch the interesting tradition of Kagura. There are also hot spring, restaurant and accommodation too in the facility.
