Daikagura

Daikagura
Michiyo Kagami
Michiyo Kagami shares with us a special daikagura performance. Daikagura is most similar to juggling, but it is an irrefutably Japanese traditional performance with more than 1000 years history. Originally a ritualistic performance held at shrines through which Japanese people would pray for people’s happiness, it is now less often seen at shrines but the philosophy of making people happy remains. This is a fun and thrilling form of Japanese entertainment, where not only juggling, but also unique umbrella performances and delicate balancing technics will be on display!
