history_culture_en /

One of the few places in the prefecture that does bugaku.

It is unknown when bugaku started in the kumanodo, however, it is said that it was something taught to watari rarajin when visitng Yamadera tateishi Shrine in the year 860. The songs which are made with the theme of the legend "the Kojiki and Nihonshoki​" are performed on a stage on a pond after the kagura have made their offering. This is one of the few places in the prefecture where bugaku is done and is being treasured by all the heads of the shrine.
