“Kagura” is a traditional Japanese form of music and dance dedicated to Shinto gods. The Kochi Castle festival in mid-September showcases seven types of kagura in Kochi Prefecture and offers a rare opportunity for visitors to see such performances. The solemn songs and dance are deeply impressive. The festival also features candles which light up stone stairs, and visitors can enjoy hot light meals beneath the moon and castle tower.
