    Jindai Odori, the "Era of Gods" Dance

    Jindai Odori's root is said to be a rain-making ritual more than 1100 years ago, which makes it different from other Japanese traditional rituals like "Protection against evil" or "Repelling Insects" rituals. This is designated in 1954, as an important national intangible ethnic cultural property for its brilliance and valiance.
