"Sansa (参) dance" is a Bon festival dance that is transmitted around Morioka city, and it is said that the legend of Raiki (bill of the devil) of Mitsuishi Shrine is its origin. Originally the lamp and costume were unnecessary dances, but the dance was unified at the life of the Morioka lord during the culture and Bunsei period of the Edo period, and it was transferred to Sanbon Yanagi (Morioka City) along with the scroll. Since the "tradition" has been strongly protected since then and taught otherwise, dances and costumes vary greatly depending on the area even now.
