Shirasagi-no-mai was revived by the Asakusa Tourism Federation in 1968 as an event to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Tokyo.
The Shinto ritual of Sagimai originated from the Gion Festival of Kyoto's Yasaka Shrine, and has been dedicated and handed down for over 1000 years to ward off plagues. In 1369, when Ouchi Kinyo moved from Kyoto to build Yasaka Shrine in Yamaguchi, it appeared as a Shinto ritual at the Gion Festival in Yamaguchi. , which is now nationally known.Senso-ji Temple's Shirasagi no Mai is based on Kyoto's orthodoxy, and recreates the memorial service procession for the Keian era. 19 musicians, Shugo Doji, and others dance and parade while playing ``Shirasagi no Sho.''
