    Tokuzen Fusuma Karakuri

    Fusuma Karakuri is a traditional performing art using a series of picture-painted sliding doors moving crisscross to show different images in turns. Tokuzen Fusuma Karakuri is very rare because it's performed on temporary built outdoor stages. The scale is a size larger than that of Usiroyama's, totally 57 fusumas of 9 sets. You can enjoy it with its local folk songs and dances during the autumn festval period. Miyoshi City designated it as a tangible folk cultural property. (On December 20 in 2012)
