Yamana Jinja Tennosai Bugaku

Yamana Jinja Tennosai Bugaku Shizuoka (July)

The matsuri of Yamana Shrine is called Gion of Iida, as the dance which was performed at the Gion Matsuri in Kyoto before the Onin War (1467~1477) is still performed here. The dance consists, of eight parts. The Toro-no-mai, in which the dancer wears a headdress in the shape of a praying mantis, is unusual in Japan. During the dance, eight floats rotate around the stage, and the matsuri reaches its climax. It is an Important Intangible Folk Cultural Property designated by the country.
