The Tokyo Tower? A Kaminarimon Gate? You will imagine various thing.
However, Tokyo's charm is not only them. Shishimai is also in Tokyo!
This time, we introduce about Sato-Kagura Kotobukijishi.
Among the lion dance, we have the opportunity to see the lion dance as a congratulatory in New Year or festivities in Tokyo. It is called Kotobukijishi which is born in Edo era.
This dance is put on Edo Festival music, and played by one person called Hitori-Tachi. Thus, it is a brisk way of dancing only found Edo style. The lion mask painted golden may be used especially at a banquet.
