Kinryu no Mai was directed by the late Mantaro Kubota, directed by Yoshio Yoshikawa, composed by Yoshiaki Machida, and choreographed by Tomoaki Fujima. I will perform.It is already a well-known event.


Kinryuzan, the name of the mountain of Senso-ji Temple, is said to be auspicious, saying, ``A thousand pine trees grew in one night near the 18th temple, and after three days, a gold-scaled dragon about 100 feet long from the sky descended into the pine tree. However, after that, I didn't see a certain place, and it came from the place called Geumryongsan.


The Kinryu no Mai is derived from this origin, and when the Showa main hall was completed in October 1958, the Asakusa Kannon Keisankai dedicated it as a commemorative event that will be handed down to future generations.
The golden dragon, 15 meters long and weighing 80 kilograms, is said to delight in the sight of Kannon, and its brave and splendid dance is said to have great religious significance. And it is held on October 18th, the good day of the chrysanthemum memorial service.
