Fusa kagura can be classified as southern kagura widely distributed in southern Iwate prefecture and northern inland area of Miyagi prefecture.
Although there are various theories about the history and history of Nanbu Kagura, there are various theories, but two kinds of kagura of Hakushinkagura of the former Sendai Sakai northern inland area and Yamabushi Kagura of the former Morioka Sakai are fused in It is thought that it has become a figure of today, repeating the fusion among tradition groups while achieving its own development such as theatrical production of Oku Joruri which is other performing arts while being inherited by the farmers in the post-local area.
Fusa Kagura was founded in 1863 as the founder of Kagura from the neighboring village, and since that time he has participated in the same area as Mt. Ishikurayama. Kumano Shrine (formerly Fusa Muramurasha) and Ibuki Shrine (formerly Kadzaki Murasha) For the sake of being a dedication to Kagura, I prayed for the prosperity of the area and the rich harvest of five grains. A number of important works for understanding the formation of Southern Kagura and the style of the similar Kagura have been inherited to this day, and it is also valuable in that it retains the form of Forin Kagura in its dance patterns and footsteps.
The preservation society was formed with the consensus of the local residents in 1972. Currently, the number of members is 42 and training of the 14th successor is under way. Even if the population declines in the area, we continue to provide guidance for all primary school children of Kusa Community Association and Kadozaki Elementary School 4 to 6 and work to foster successors.
