Since the 12th century takes place in Kasuga Shrine, and more specifically Wakamiya-jinja shrine located on its premises, the Festival On-matsuri. It was organized for the first time during an epidemic to pray for the eradication of the scourge and the blessings of fruitful harvest. This historic festival is still today one of the major festivals in the Nara Prefecture, attracting many tourists. The On-matsuri lasts four days, but the best events take place on December 17. We have here the opportunity to attend performances of kagura, music dedicated to the gods, or bugaku, a court music accompanied by traditional dances. These shows, like other products that are, are rarely seen today and the festival surely delight anyone interested in the performing arts and traditional music.
