A regular festival held at Yasaka shrine in order to pray for abundant crops, this offering and performance takes place every July 14th. Three dance and music performances of kagura, sangiri, nigimakura featuring mythical and folk characters like the tengu (long-nosed goblin), oni (ogres), hyottoko (clown-like man), otafuku (plain Jane), jiji (old man), and others are presented as the procession is made. These events serve to not only entertain, but to preserve and protect the traditions of Miyama.
