Yama-age Festival 2019

The history and tradition of this extravagant open-air Kabuki have been passed down the generations for around 450 years since 1560. Roads are closed for the stage to be set.

Audiences are struck by the dynamic Kabuki and elegant dance performances, along with the immense stage backgrounds of Yama (stage scenery) made from local washi (handcrafted paper).
