Yashiro Seinen Hono Kabuki 八代青年奉納歌舞伎 Kochi (Nov.)
Yashiro Seinen Hono Kabuki is performed as an offering to the Hachiman deity, who likes plays, and to pray for bumper crops. The kabuki has a history of over 300 years, and it is continued by a local youth group. The group has inherited the teachings of its predecessor Inaki san, who placed importance on tradition. Along with the mawari butai (revolving stage), which was built in the early Meiji period, the tradition has been passed down from parents to children and children to grandchildren. On November 5th, the evening of Jinsai, the people and the deity enjoy the performance. (“Yashiro Hachimangu no Mawari Butai” is a nationally designated tangible folk cultural property.)
