Advance the traditional performing art of Hiroshima Kagura to the next stage
There are nearly 300 kagura troupes in Hiroshima prefecture, and it is known as one of the leading kagura places in Japan.
However, the motivation of the members declined due to the cancellation of the performance due to the corona sickness, and the successor training was also done.
