    Ushiroyama 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. Although this art had once disappeared during the post-war rebuilding and high economic growth of the 20th century, it was performed again with 69 on-fusuma pictures for the first time in 50 years on October, 2005. At present, you can enjoy it with its local folk songs and dances during the autumn festival period. Miyoshi City designated it as a tangible folk cultural property. (In February 2006)
