Bugaku

The traditional Bugaku, ancient musical court-dance, of Itsukushima Shrine has been handed down through the generations from the day of Taira-no-Kiyomori.

The elegant Bugaku performed to the accompaniment of Gagaku music on a grand vermilion colored stage that is reflected beautifully on the blue sea, is reminiscent of the culture glory of the Heian Period.
