Mikagura was Dedicated

2013mikagura.JPGOn 16th December, Mikagura, ceremonial court music and dance, was dedicated. Under the light of bonefire and moonlight, Shinto priests and maidens solemnly served the ritual.

Peruvian and Samoan ambassador experienced the traditional performance which was first dedicated in Tsurugaoka Hachiamangu about 800 years ago.

Before Mikagura, a lecture on the theme of Shikinen Sengu Ceremony in Ise-Jingu was held by Chief Priest.
