Enjoy this unique opportunity to experience Kagura (sacred music and ritual dances) from Chichibu, an important Shinto mountain shrine near Tokyo, in the first and only US performance of the shrine's Kagura troupe. Chichibu Kagura, dating back to approximately the seventeenth century, with a repertory based on ancient myths, has been designated by the government as an Important Formless Folkloric Cultural Property.
