Sosha Shrine’s Annual Festival Eve Kyogen Performance

Sagiryu Kyogen performances offered on the Eve of the Annual Festival

Sagiryu is one of the Kyogen schools, which was passed down in only three places in Japan. Three major schools of Kyogen: Sagiryu, Izumiryu and Okuraryu, ceased after the Meiji Restoration in the late 19th century, but Izumiryu and Okuraryu schools were reinvigorated shortly thereafter. The Saigyu Kyogen school steadily declined, but today, a Nohgaku club called "Tekihokai," based in former Mano Town, strives to preserve the style. At Sosha Shrine's Annual Festival Eve, Sagiryu Kyogen performances are offered by Sado Sagiryu Kyogen Study Group and Mano Junior High School's Kyogen Club.
