Isehara City and the Mt. Oyama Pilgrimage
Destination for the Faith and Leisure of Edo’s Commoners
On the walking way to Mt. Oyama, I could hear good explanations by the professional guides through earphones, that was so good. Though I've been here several times, I could see Oyama in a new light.
The atmosphere and performance, especially the experience of the formal worship at Oyama-Afuri shrine were very good.
At first, children performing Yamato-mai were ashamed of a different style stage than they used to be, but they practiced hard. It was a good opportunity to gain confidence and vitality for the future generations of the region.
