For this meetup, we will go to Yasukuni Shrien to see Kagura Mai, a form of dance performance dedicated to Shinto Gods. "Kagura (神楽, かぐら, 'god-entertainment') is a Japanese word referring to a specific type of Shinto theatrical dance—with roots arguably predating those of Noh. Once strictly a ceremonial art derived from kami'gakari (神懸, かみがかり, 'oracular divinaification'), Kagura has evolved in many directions over the span of more than a millennium. Today it is very much a living tradition, with rituals tied to the rhythms of the agricultural calendar, as well as vibrant Kabuki-esque theatre, thriving primarily in parts of Shimane prefecture, and urban centers such as Hiroshima."
