I had the opportunity to see kagura about three weekends back. The town which held the 5 hour performance is famous throughout Kyushu for its Kagura dances, and with good reason. It was truely amazing, and seemed like the whole town pulled together to make the event happen. I learned that a couple of my students are actually in training at the moment. But this isn't normal training, they start young at elementary school and don't preform as official dancers or music players until they are in their late teens. That is some dedication. I edited the video into the essence of the story that was told at the performance. Enjoy.
