The sight of the Noh-inspired dance at the Kushida-shrine after the Kushida-iri is not known to many.
After the presentation ceremony before the Kushida-shrine, that is dedicated to the shinto god Sunsanoo-no-Mikoto, there is a “claming Noh” performance.
Various Noh-theatre playes, such as “Okina”, “Takasago” or “Funabenkei” are performed on the round walkway, where the Kakiyama were carried through.
This tradition came up during the Edo-period, during which the magistrate watching the Kushida-iri would later want to be entertained by Noh theatre.
Originally the duty of which district would give the Noh-performance was passed around similar to the hosting districts system. However as in 1913 it was Fukujin-nagares turn, while Fukujin-nagare was no longer a part of the festivites, the duty was taken up by the representatives of the Kushida-shrine and today is always organised by the shrine.
