Obama Shrine's Annual Dedication at the Castle Festival
It's said that when a former provincial lord of Wakasa in Obama returned from over the Musashi River, he brought with him a lion performer. The performer was given near family status and was only allowed to perform during celebrations inside the castle. The dance involves 2 male lions in a desperate fight over a lone female lion. It is designated as an Intangible Folk Cultural Property in Fukui Prefecture.
