Yahagi Jinja Haru no Taisai, Niwaka to Shishimai

Yahagi Jinja Haru no Taisai, Niwaka to Shishimai Ehime (May)

The Yahagi Jinja Haru no Taisai, held in Asakura, Imabari City, includes a lion dance and Niwaka kyogen, a play of comic storytelling. It is the only remaining Niwaka performance in Ehime Prefecture, and is performed during the lion dance surrounded by the audience. At the end of the lion dance, "tsugijishi" is performed, in which the dancers stand on one another. The sight of the lion dancers three or four layers high in the air is the highlight of the dance.
