This project is organized for the first time by the local goup. At the end of the Edo period, at a shrine of a small village located at a height of 400 m, a five-grain flea festival was held, and farmers were offering offerings such as songs and dances in addition to offerings. This votive art became a traditional Japanese puppet show, “Joruri” and they built a rural stage in the shrine grounds as a place to practice the puppetry.
And locals try to protect this “Joruri” to future generation and needs to volunteer’s support to organize “Joruri” stage.
