Kokiriko Festival こきりこ祭り

Let’s all have fun doing the Kokiriko dance!

The sounds of a flute and drum echo round the elegant Shirayama Shrine. To the airs of plaintive melody, a graceful votive dance is performed. The entire Kaminashi district is thronged, with stalls lining the precincts of the shrine, a folk song stage erected in the Kokiriko Hall and lion dances being performed. For the last event, called a Mass Kokiriko Dance, the locals form a circle and all dance the Kokiriko. People who have come to view the spectacle are also allowed to join in the circle and dance along, playing the sasara (bamboo whisk).
