This Lion Dance needs two person. ‘Hanamai’ wears Kimono with narrow sleeves and puts Shaguma on the head and Dengu mask on the face. ‘Hyogeji’ puts ugly man's mask on, ‘Otama’ on ugly woman's mask and wonders around the Lion and cheers the audiences. Lion plays chasing them and gets on people's shoulder and shows the Lion performance. It means the celebration of a good harvest.
