"Shirasagi no Mai" performance

I was forced to refrain from performing to prevent infection.

Date and time:

Wednesday, April 11, 2021

Shirasagi no Mai was reconstructed by the Asakusa Tourism Federation in 1968 as a commemorative event for the 100th anniversary of Tokyo, in the form of "Sagimai" in the festival procession of "Asakusa Temple Keian Engi Emaki" in 1652.
It is said that the Shinto ritual of Sagimai originated from the Gion Festival at Yasaka Shrine in Kyoto and was handed down for the purpose of eradicating the plague from more than 1,000 years ago, and it is said that it was very popular. In 1369), when Yasaka Shrine was solicited and built from Kyoto to Yamaguchi, it appeared as a Shinto ritual of the Gion Festival in Yamaguchi, and in 1542, Masayori Yoshimi, the lord of Tsuwano, Shimane Prefecture, moved from Yamaguchi. , Today it is famous all over the country."Shirasagi no Mai" at Sensoji Temple is a restoration of the relocation memorial service procession of Keian Engi, based on the orthodox Kyoto, with 3 samurai, 1 stick pretending, 1 bait, 1 large umbrella, 1 Shirasagi, 19 musicians, guardian children, and others dance and parade while playing "Shirasagi no Singing".
