Hello evrybody, I hope you will have a great year.

Kagura is a sacred music and dancing performed at shinto shrine.

Happy New Year Nobu! Best wishes to you and your family.
A beautiful photo, question; what are the little white 'lightning bolts' hanging around the stage? I have seen them before and do not understand them.

beautyful costumes and masks!that is "very japanese", if I dare to say..Has it something to do with theater NO, or is it something very particular for the New Year?

I would have loved to watch this. This structure is especially for performances? Do all big shrines have something like it?

Nice to see you posting again, Nobu. I hope you had a good holiday. Happy New Year too!

Kagura is performed not only in new year but also in some festival.

I think that stage is for kagura.
