Kawamoto Jishibai

Every year Kawamoto Town organizes a jishibai – local theatre performance featuring a re-enactment of the lifestyle of the past in this area. I was lucky enough this year to be invited to make an appearance as a bon-odori dancer at the close of the play.

I was only able to attend a few practices, but I enjoyed every moment spent with this group of people. I was able to see a side of Japan that I haven’t yet experienced – a playful freedom that was enjoyed in acting out the lives of another time.
