A Grand Performance by a Spirited Preservation Society
Toono City, Iwate
Every 3rd Saturday and Sunday in September
Performed at Tono Festivals, Etc
What stands out about this dance is the curtain draped over the body and the black lion mask with wooden horns attached and finely shaved white wood as hair. The dance is performed by around 30 people, with some carrying swords and others beating an accompanying rhythm on drums.
