Takachiho shrine

 

Takachiho Shrine is located just west of the town center, is nestled in a grove

of tall cedars. During the day the shrine’s nondescript, unpainted buildings 

blend in naturally with the surrounding trees. 
The light that filters through, brings with it an air of calm, peaceful reverence.

Today this legend is reenacted as Yokagura in a series of 33 episodes depicting

the divine quarrel as well as other deeds of the gods.  On winter weekends,

people gather to watch all-night performances of these episodes at different

locations each week, sometimes at private homes. The performances are 
held on Saturday evenings from mid November to mid February.


 

Kagura

A massively shortened version of Takachiho Yokagura is performed for tourists every 

night throughout the year at the Takachiho Shrine.

The one-hour show consists of just a few scenes of the story, performed by masked 

dancers and accompanied by traditional instrument. It is held at the Yokagura

performance hall, just a few steps from the shrine’s main building.
