3rd Sunday of December every year

Hayachine Kagura, which was registered as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage in October 2009, is a dance that has been passed down in the Taisho area for more than 600 years, and was passed down by Shugen Yamabushi who made Mt. Hayachine a sacred place. It is a collective term for ``Daaisaku Kagura'' and ``Dake Kagura'' that has been passed down in the Take area. While Gake Kagura is characterized by a brave dance in five beats, Daisaku Kagura is characterized by an elegant dance in seven beats. Until the early Showa period, there was a custom called ``Mawari Kagura'' and ``Tori Kagura,'' in which people visited each village and danced.
