Kagura is a traditional Shinto theatrical dance. The performances are based on folkloric tales and each performance is accompanied by the sound of taiko drumming and flutes. It was used for centuries as a dedication to the "Ujigami" - a guardian god of a particular place or location. It is also performed to pray for good harvests, bountiful fishing catches, and recovering from illness.

Kagura is performed every week in the purpose-built Kagura-Monzen-Toji-Village in Akitakata City. Sometimes they let audience members try on the elaborate and intricately sewn costumes after the performance. There is also a museum detailing the history of kagura as well as a number of shops and restaurants. The facility also boasts a natural hot spring bath and high quality accommodation.
