Osugi Shrine 大杉神社 あんばさま

Every year a gorgeous festival is held however, this time due to covid-19 it had been cancelled. Instead of it, they decided to dance which is said to the dance could ward off pestilence.

Actually this dance is one of the intangible cultural heritage in Japan!

Hope to see the festival next year and if you are interested in this dance and want to learn how to do it, let me know. I will try to find an instructor 😉
