Shishimai Performance at Choshiguchi Shrine | KASUKABE
January 20 @ 14:00 - 17:00Free
Kasukabe Shishimai – the Choshiguchi shishimai (lion dance) was brought to Kasukabe from the current Koshigaya city in 1697. It is a lion dance with three performers making up the body of the lion. They play music while they dance and they have accompanying music too.
Three people shishimai performances are not that common in Saitama which is one of the attractions of this traditional new year’s event.
This year, 2019, the kasukabe shishimai will be held on Sunday the 20th of January from 2 pm. It is always held in the Choshi guchi Katori shrine in Kasukabe.
For more shishimai and new year’s events in Saitama, please see the event pages.
