Kitakami Michinoku Geino Festival

北上・みちのく芸能まつり(北上市)

This is a festival in which over 100 groups from in and out of Iwate perform a variety of traditional art forms, such as Oni Kenbai ( national important intangible cultural property ) , Shishi-Odori, and kagura. It is also a great opportunity to hear various traditional Japanese instruments live, which accompany the dances. You will find that the instruments produce a wide range of expressive sounds, from melancholic to passionate. You may find an instrument you have never seen before. The music, the dances, and the costumes all embody the soul of Japan. The festival is definitely worth a visit, since there are not many other occasions where you can enjoy so many types of traditional performances. The festival is held for three days, starting on the 1st Saturday of August.
