Lion Dance

Hello, this is Papi from J-Hoppers Hida Takayama Guest House.

I went to see "Lion dance" in Syokawa.
There are many lion dance in Japan but this is special!


30 lions dance together.








At the end of the dance, the lion "bites" the heads of some watchers, to bring luck.








It was the first time to see the tongue of the lion.
I hope it bring luck too.
