Iwami and Geihoku are the regions within Shimane and Hiroshima Prefectures, Japan. Kagura means dance rituals for good harvest dating back to the ancient times and there are various different types. Among them, Iwami and Geihoku Kagura are deeply rooted into the general public in their local regions and their theatrical entertainment element is truly remarkable. There is an overseas Kagura Preservation Association in Brazil and now we have launched another one in New York in order to introduce you to the allure of Kagura. We are currently looking for supporters who would donate your time and effort for our activities!
