The founder of Shizuku Itazawa dance is Kouikekoko (Cursor 4 (1807)-1815), who is the 4th generation of the Gobei family in Itazawa, Kamigo-cho, Tono City It is said that she was impressed by the dance she saw at Enshu Kakegawa, where she traveled, and wanted to make a souvenir to her hometown, and she told her hometown she remembered her apprenticeship.
Shiho dance in the Tono region is a curtain dance that dances while turning the curtain attached to the front. Dances called makudori dances exist in Kinnuki, Iwate, Nichinohe, Shimokitanai, etc. If you compare art, it should be called Tono type. The characteristic is that it is required to attach a long kangara to the head, and to attach the species fukube, child dance, middle drum, and sword swing. It is also called "Kangarajishi" because of the impressive "Kanji-Kangara" attached to the head.
The Tono-type Shishi dances are of different origins: Komaki and Nagano. It is believed that the Komagi-kei has completed the original Shishio dance pattern by incorporating the new elements learned from Yamashiro or Enshu Kakegawa into the traditional Shishi dances that have been present before. Shizuku Itazawa dance is a line of the Komagi Kako dance, and is in line with the blue lion dance of the intangible folk cultural property designated by Iwate Prefecture. In addition, it boasts a membership number of 100, and it can be highly appreciated that regular training is being conducted to actively foster successors.
