Come see the Oise Dance, one of Ikata’s annual traditions of old. From “Misaki events“:
The Oise Dance began long ago with the second Mongol invasion of Japan (1281), when Japan was miraculously saved by typhoons for the second time. People took the typhoons as a sign that anything could be overcome with the help of the gods, and the Oise Dance was created to celebrate their glory. It is not clear exactly when Futanazu’s Oise Dance began, but it is said that at one point there was a great fire in the village, and they began performing the dance soon afterwards.
The Sadamisaki Adventure Club will go see the dance, so if you’re interested please join us!
