Ogano Kabuki and Spring Festival | CHICHIBU
April 20, 2018 @ 09:00 - April 21, 2018 @ 17:00
Ogano KabukiThanks to a very impressive and resilient community spirit Ogano Kabuki has been preserved through the hard work and dedication of its towns folk. Ogano kabuki is renowned for the efforts of the community to create all the costumes, props and acting within Ogano. You can see Ogano kabuki at this spring festival as well as seven other times a year on either the main stage in Ogano or on festival floats.
Ogano Spring FestivalThe kabuki is carried out on the first day on a “yatai” type of float. However, this is not the only spectacular feature of this festival. You can also see Kagura, a type of theatrical dance sometimes referred to as a “Sword Dance”, although that doesn’t quite do it justice. Another traditional and majestic performance at the festival is that of horseback archery.
Ogano Spring Festival AccessThe festival is quite tricky to access as the nearest station is at least a 20 minute drive away, by bus you would want to add another 10 minutes to that expected time. You can get a bus from Chichibu Railway Chichibu Station to the area and the shrine is an 8 minute walk from Ojika bus depot. See map in the grey details box at the bottom of the post.
