Shinshiro-City Horaiji Temple Dengaku (Horaiji Dengaku)

Date : 01/03/2019


  • Horaiji Temple Dengaku (Horaiji Dengaku)

The Dengaku event at famous Horaiji Temple was originated as memorial service, idealized by the monks as a ritualistic dance to be carried along with the townspeople, in honor to the protective divinity that accomplished in beheading the mountain-dwelling demon by order of the legendary ascetic Rishu Sennin, to whom the temple's foundation is attributed. The procedures have reached their current model after the cross-mixing believed to have occurred during the Muromachi Period, of elements of the countryside life and asceticism, to the religious faith in Bhaisajyaguru, the Buddha of Medicine known in Japan as Yakushi Nyorai. Held mainly to pray for abundant harvest, this folkloric art features extensive performance displays of kagura and ta-asobi movements, and is appointed an Important Intangible Folk Culture Heritage of Japan, registered as "The Dengaku of Okumikawa".
