1. Watch the popular Kagura dance performance in Hiroshima and, as a special experience, visit the rehearsal hall, see the costumes up close and listen to the performers explain the essence of Kagura dancing. This will all be in English. What is Kagura? Kagura is a dance where performers dress in traditional-style costumes and wear expressive masks dancing to the beats and rhythms of the drums and flutes. It began as a Shinto ritual praying to god for a big harvest, but today it is enjoyed by people as a local special celebratory event. 2. Day 2 includes an agricultural experience where you get to harvest vegetables among other things. 3. During your free time on Day 2, you can choose to visit one of two museums where the entrance ticket is included: A. Okuda Genso Sayume Art Museum (permanent exhibition) - see the works of celebrated local painter Okuda Genso and the ceramic dolls created by his wife Sayume. B. Jusaburo-Kan Museum (permanent exhibition) - visit the museum and studio of expert puppet maker Tsujimura Jusaburo *Please choose from the two options on Day 2. 4. Stay in a ryokan in Kagura Monzen Tojimura, a village complex full of traditional Japanese architecture, natural hot springs and a sense of nostalgia for simpler times. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Since this is an independent plan, a tour conductor will not accompany the trip.
