Hi there!!This is Chika from J-Hoppers Hiroshima.
The other day,I joined a KAGURA tour with my co-worker Tomoko.
Have you seen KAGURA before?
Kagura dance traces its roots back to Shinto and was performed in rituals in ancient times. Over the ages, Kagura has evolved into several variations and styles. In particular, the area around the northern part of Hiroshima, Kagura was developed into a popular form of entertainment by adding dramatic performances.
we went to KAGURA Monzen toji Mura to see the KAGURA dance.
It took around 1 hour and half from center of Hiroshima city by car.
I have seen Kagura dance since I was a child.
That's why it's so familiar for me.
We met some foreigners at the tour,and they said it was the first time to see Kagura dance.Everyone looked so excited with it!!
This tour is included a meal coupon.so we went to Japanese restaurant together.
We had a dinner and talked a lot !It was so much fun!!
The Kagur dance was so gorgeous and great!!
After the performance、we could try on the Kagura costume and take a photo with performers on the stage.
we joined the Kagura tour this time.But they still have lots of one day trip tour!
