The Consulate General of Japan will present a free performance of Iwami Kagura, a dynamic form of ancient Japanese dance renowned for its splendid costumes, amazing special effects, pulsating drum rhythms, and melodic flute. Iwami Kagura was originally performed by Shinto priests at the yearly autumn festival as a sign of gratitude to the Shinto gods for their help in producing a bountiful harvest. This
performance will mark the first time this art form has been showcased in Atlanta. The tour consists of a group of thirteen performers and musicians from the Iwami Kagura
Shinwa-Kai in Masuda City, Shimane Prefecture. (Seating is first-come first-served)
