The Kagura you will see today is called "Geihoku Kagura" (Northern Hiroshima) and has been preserved and passed along in Hiroshima Prefecture through approximately 150 groups. Furthermore, numerous competitions have been held and at present, it is the type of Kagura drawing the most attention. Though the performers have to study and work, they attend practice two to three times a week and perform at festivals and events on the weekends.
