“Taasobi” in Itabashi City
 
In the past, there were many paddy fields in Itabashi City, where people cultivate grains such as rice and wheat.
“Taasobi” is a traditional art to pray for abundant grains and the prosperity of descendants.
Mainly three performers consist of “Oinamoto” as a leader, “Koinamoto” and “Kuwadori” as assistants. The performers play out the situation of rice farming for a year by singing and acting for approximately two hours.
Imagine the situation of performance of rice farming though watching the performances’ action.
You can enjoy watching “Taasobi” at any of the following two shrines, which has unique features and differs in songs and actions.
Reservation is not required.
