Videos From Kagura at Shirakami-san Autumn Festival 2012

I took along our 10 year old son to the second and final night of the annual aki matsuri autumn festival at Shirakami Shrine downtown for a school night treat. We stuffed our faces with heavily buttered baked potatoes and squid on a stick and enjoyed the kagura performances.

It was tough to lever the lad out of bed for school the next morning, but it was worth it. Below are a couple of videos from the performances.
